What is occu-lock?
The term occu-lock is not a term used by ophthalmologists. There are, however, muscular and several neurological conditions that are characterized by the limitation of eye movements. A visit to your eye doctor or internist may be of value in helping you to sort this out.Helpful? 1 person found this helpful.
How are watery eyes diagnosed?
Laura Fine, MD, Ophthalmology, answeredYour doctor diagnoses the cause of watery eyes by examining your eyes and conducting medical tests to determine why the problem has developed. Analyzing tear samples reveals whether an infection is to blame, for example. Or the doctor may perform a test to gauge tear production. Another test involves irrigation of the lacrimal drainage system, to determine whether tear drainage is normal, and if not, where the blockage is occurring.Helpful? 3 people found this helpful.
What are puffy eyes?
Ellen Marmur, MD, Dermatology, answered
An edema is too much fluid in the skin tissue, in this case under the eyes. This water or fluid retention can be due to anything from too little sleep to too much salty food.
