I’ve been having problems with my vision and wondered if anyone had any words of advice.
I have weird eyes! I’ve worn glasses since I was 10 (now 53) and am very short sighted. I had prisms and varifocals for years before diagnosis. I was diagnosed with PPMS in 2011.
For the last few years I have had temporary double vision in both eyes after doing close up things like my computer or reading. This is slightly strange as it stays when I cover one eye up whereas I’m told that shouldn’t happen. It only stays for an hour or so and then goes back to normal. I’ve been told they can’t do anything for me and it has been classed as convergence paralysis. It troubled me to start with but now I just accept that it happens.
However yesterday I started getting permanent double vision when I look towards the left without doing any close up work and is the more normal type where if I cover one eye up it goes away. My eye also aches a bit. I had my eyes tested routinely 10 days ago and everything was fine and I didn’t need my glasses updating.
Do you think (and I suspect I know what you’re going to say) I should get it checked out? Seeing I don’t have relapses do you reckon it’s here to stay?
Just after people’s thoughts and also wondered if anyone had had similar experiences.
