Hi everyone. I have had ON for over 14 weeks now, in both eyes. I was on steroids a few weeks ago which seemed to help my eyesight settle down quite abit, but now my eyesight is again really bad. I have double vision, blurred vision, peripheral vision is very poor too. I have optholomologist again on Thursday and I see the Neurologist on 3rd July. Anyone else had ON in both eyes? and has it affected your eyesight permanently? I am quite scared that this has gone on for such a long time now that my vision is going to be like this forever. My optholmologist is a lovely man but he speaks so quickly and with such a strong accent that I dont always understand him. I am going to ask him if I should have more steroids as the 3 week course I had did help. My GP has told me I should not drive as my insurance wont cover me should I have an accident… which brings me on to another question… do I need to phone my insurers to tell them I have ON? Im quite worried that I wont be able to drive at all and will be forever stuck in my house now!
Thanks people xx
