Hi, not diagnosed yet. Long story!!
Essentially my brain MRIs were ‘in the normal range’ so I am getting a second opinion.
Anyway, I have developed some eye issues recently. I have been having occasional blurry vision for about 8 months. Optician I saw 6 weeks ago said I have 20/20 vision.
In the last week I have had a lot more eye floaters and flashes of light when I close my eyes for about 30 seconds afterwards. This isn’t the usual bright spots after looking at a light. It’s intermittent strobes and flashes.
Today I have noticed flickering in my peripheral vision of my left eye and the amount of floaters has increased a LOT. I can’t bear to look at anything striped because it jiggles around and makes me feel sick. Also, I can barely see in low light. Where before I could make out things in my room with a small amount of light, now I feel completely blind and I can’t make anything out.
My question is - those of you who have had Optic neuritis, did you have any eye symptoms leading up to the blindness? I’m worried about driving in case I go temporarily blind.
