Went for more tests.

Lees screen, from what I recall was pretty good, the Bagolini was find,
Maddox was performed - Red filter over left eye, showing vertical line
to the left of the white dot, and horizontal line to the bottom of the
white dot.

Worth four dot test was performed again. This showed at near, three
green dots, and two red dots that were to the right and slightly above
the green dots. At distance, they started off as four dots but separated
to five, then converged back to four again.

The doctor mentioned something called 4th Nerve palsy or something, and
they did say that my left eye was too high compared to the right, and
when tracking to the right, my left eye would continue upwards.

But.

He said my alignment issues weren't causing my vision problem I reported
in October. Basically because I have no double vision. And that people
live with alignment issues day in day out.

He thinks it's interesting that I mentioned my distaste of fluorescent
lights, citing it as a classical migraine symptom. While I don't suffer
migraines (or at least I don't thinkI do), he suggested the effects I
observe are usually related to migraine sufferers, so he will check me
for that.

He thinks however it interesting as well that I mentioned that Im not
convinced that I have an underactive thyroid and am interested in
thinking about hyperparathyroidism. He said that could be a factor, and
wanted to refer me to an endo. I said fine, but let me speak to my GP
first. I might get some reply within a week rather than 12 which is the
typical referral time.

He also wants to send me away for various other tests, something about
field tests (presume field of vision), checking my optic nerve, and also
performing an MRI.

He says it could be down to the Lansoprazole I was taking at the time,
as that can lead to hallucinations.

Finally, I feel Im on the right path though.

He says there's no need for prism glasses, the vision issue I have is
nothing to do with double vision, and to ignore prisms. I said, "it's a
good job I went to spec savers then". My first optician wanted to stick
me in prism glasses straight away. Glad I trusted my instincts.

A couple of other interesting things, they reckon I've developed a
slight head tilt to the right or something, and that my face was, well,
he commented upon it's shape. Like it was asymmetrical, but he didn't
say that. Used some other term to mean something similar but not quite that.

Forgot to ask though about the ET Deviation though and how much it was.

Cya
