My ON took about 3 months to sort itself out - the main symptoms were:
- Eye Pain on moving eye far left, far right, up and down
- Colour Vision issues - red colour blindness, greyed or bleached out colours
- Distorted vision (shimmering, wiggling and warped images)
I have had floaters in both my eyes for a few years - I am 28. They are not necessarily a symptom of ON and I was told that they never go away - your brain just sort of gets used to them and sees around them. Perhaps it was a coincidence that the floaters started at the same time as your ON? The occurrence of them (in my case) is just normal as you get older. Mine look like thousands of little round cells and I can see them most when I look up at a clear sky or at a white background xx
Reikiblossom: I would certainly mention ON. Even if you didn’t fail the colourblindness test, if you struggled more with one eye than the other, it’s still worth mentioning something. I think, given the fact you are being re-investigated for a neurological condition, it’s perfectly reasonable to be aware of what symptoms/conditions you should be looking out for.
Or if you don’t want to suggest it outright, perhaps lead them in that direction gently. Mention the colour changes (especially red) and the eye pain. At least then it’s noted. Unfortunately, they rarely offer treatment for ON (from what I have heard and experienced) so havng it noted may be all you need.
