My eye is alive! My left eye won't stop twitching, specifically the area nearest my temple. I wouldn't post asking how to "cure" this, but it's been twitching for months! I tried massaging the area... help me kill this!

In medical shows like House or E.R., the doctor will often shine a flashlight in to the eye of a comatose patient, but the pupil doesn't constrict. How do they do this special effect? [more inside]

What are those things called that optometrists use to determine your prescription, and how do they work? (The ones where they say, "Which looks better, this... or this?")

So, I'm pretty sure that I'm on the tail end of what fits the definition of a migraine. It hurts a lot less than it did. What do I say when I call the doctor's office? [more inside]

I have no idea what it is and need any information that there is out there. Sorry it's so long :( [more inside]

I'm looking for a recommendation for an eye doctor/ contact lens specialist in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area. I wear gas-permeable lenses and need a new prescription and lenses. Any suggestions would be much appreciated!

During a pre-screening for LASIK, I was told the shape of my corneas was too steep, and they recommended ASA (Advanced Surface Ablation) instead. Has anybody had this done? Any recommendations for eye surgeons in Austin? What should I know, given that I don't know anybody who's done this?

Balls of bright light, one or two, appear as if zipping through the top right corner of my right eye. First, I thought it was the headlight of a car that sneaked into my room through the curtains. But no, it happened again, this time in broad daylight.
What is it? [more inside]

I once heard that newspapers (and/or magazines) before publishing pictures of people who recently passed, would color in the highlight on their pupils. Is this a myth or a truth?

Let's say I find a shiny spherical object and under point lighting, I move it very close to my eye. I then focus on the bright spot, but focus at a distance of 1-2 feet until the patterns are in focus. At this point, it looks like a bad microscope. Am I looking at part of my own eye? Is this a documented phenomenon I could read about?

My eyesight has always been great, and in general I see just fine. As a general rule, the world is not blurry and when I look at something, whether it be 1 foot or 20 (or 100) feet away, I see what I expect to see. I've never worn glasses. [more inside]

I will be in London for a few hours on the 20th and thought that the London Eye and the Gherkin will be great to visit.
Can anyone suggest a nice walk from the Eye to the Gherkin? According to the TFL, it is a 60 min walk. Any ideas or comments?

about three hours ago i got some plywood dust/splinters in my eye. I washed out my eye and put in a bunch of eye drops. My eye still hurts, which I guess is to be expected, but more disturbingly, the pupil in the aggravated eye is dilating more than the other one. any advice or suggestions?
