Question:
I'm 55 years old and in very good health. I even recently had a full eye check-up with no issues, but this morning I woke up with a lazy left eye. Could this be the result of a mild stroke? Is this something to be concerned about?      

Answer:
Yes, any sudden change in vision requires a complete examination by an ophthalmologist. Although a stroke is a possibility, there are many other potential causes that may benefit from timely treatment.
