Eye Talk Double
Can anyone tell me what these symptoms might indicate? Type of doctor to talk to?

A young teenage child is experiencing the following symptoms: When she is standing or walking she feels tingling then numbness in the fingers, blurry vision, headache behind the eyes, double vision, then she gets tunnel vision, blackness, seizures/twitching.. These last from 30 seconds to 2 minutes. She say's the headaches go away after about 5 minutes.

Can anyone tell me what this might be? Type of doctor to see?

Of course these are neurological manifestations BUT they could well have a chemical/physiological/metabolic/infectious causes. Pediatric neurology is a recognized specialty and would be preferential but you, likely won't be able to get a Neurology appointment within a reasonable period of time.
However, due to the severity of these symptoms and the multitude of causes, this person should be seen in the Emergency Room IMMEDIATELY.

Is Lasik Eye Surgery Right for You?

If you are considering surgery such as Lasik to correct your vision problems, your vision care provider will evaluate you to see if you are a suitable candidate for the surgery. Here is what you need to know when deciding if Lasik surgery is right for you.

Lasik vision correction is effective in correcting nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. Presbyopia, a condition that mainly affects older patients, cannot be corrected with this treatment.

Before you allow someone to do this to your eyes, you really should do your homework about laser eye surgery. Talk to friends and family members that have undergone the surgery ask about their experiences. There are risks and side effects to laser eye surgery so it is best to know what you are getting into ahead of time.

Your eye doctor will evaluate you to decide if you are a suitable candidate for Lasik surgery. Not everyone is a good candidate; for example if your corneas are too thin, laser eye surgery will not be possible. Your ophthalmologist will cover all of the risks involved before you agree to Lasik surgery. Some known risks are dry eyes (which is quite common) and much more rarely - loss of vision, floaters, halos around bright lights, double vision, and others. Luckily the more serious risks are quite rare.

Of late, advances in corrective eyesight surgery are providing consumers more choices. Older patients, and even those in their 40's who are considering laser eye surgery to improve their vision should consider being evaluated for implantable lenses as an alternative.
