Full Question: My daughter constantly gets headaches near her eyes. She has has her eyes tested but they seem fine. She gets these headaches at anytime of the day and at any time of the month.

See Medication Overuse Headache: When the Remedy Backfires for more information on this. Good luck, John Claude Krusz and Teri Robert If you need to find a headache and Migraine specialist, please see our listing of patient recommended specialists .

There are two main types of amblyopia: "lazy eye" amblyopia, and toxic amblyopia. Lazy eye amblyopia occurs frequently in young children whose eyes do not line up correctly - a condition known as strabismus . To prevent double vision (in which the patient sees two images of everything), the brain suppresses the sight of one eye so that the other eye does all the work. The brain structures dependent on the eye that is not working may atrophy (waste away) or fail to develop. There are usually no obvious symptoms. By the time the condition is recognized, vision may be permanently damaged. Usually, the child appears to see as well as the next child. Sometimes, however, the condition that causes the amblyopia is very noticeable: the eyes may turn eith...
