    Off-centered ('lazy') eye without vision loss?

    Hey all.

    After a bad case of the common cold in 2015 my nose got so stopped up that I began to sneeze out of my right eye. This soon went away, but ever since my right eye would tingle when I felt stressed or if I was getting sick. Fast forward to two years later, in late 2017 I began to feel an intense pressure on my right eye if I slept on my right side, as if gravity was about to cause my eye to pop from it's socket. Eventually, it did, and I felt a sharp pain as my eye seemed to now jut further right towards the edge of my face than it previously did. Afterwards, I started sleeping on my left side, until I began to feel the same thing happen to it. I tried using a makeshift eye patch (with a cloth napkin and a lanyard) to cover my left eye in hopes it'd force my right eye to come back into alignment (I read it on the internet), but after a day of doing so I felt the same pop in my left eye when I went to lay down to sleep that night. Ever since, my eyes seem to bug out, pointed in opposite directions in a sort of V shape, with each eye being one of the prongs of the V.

    I still feel mild pain in my right eye (usually once-twice a week) and with it comes a dry lump in my throat, as if I'm trying to swallow my own adam's apple. In times of extreme stress (like when finding out my grandmother was sick) I've had my right eye begin to veer far to the right, as if the muscle in my eye is cramping, and I can't get it come back into alignment, instead having to wait a day for it to go back. I've went to an optometrist, who said he couldn't find anything wrong with my eyes, and a general practitioner (referred to by the optometrist) who gave me a physical and did bloodwork, and both tests came back fine.

    What do I have, if anything? This is both a medical and a cosmetic concern for me. How do I go about returning my eyes to their previous alignment, if I can at all?
