There are LLMDs but an opthomalogist who specializes in lyme I doubt exists. I may be wrong but throughout the many years I have never heard of anyone seeing such a person. Eye problems go with the lyme disease territory. Once you're able to start treatment that will help. Maybe you could state the exact nature of the problem here. Floaters, lid spasms, lightning bolts, cloudy vision, eye pain are just some of the symptoms that can occur with lyme. I've had them all.

Best,

Jen

Re: Looking for LL Eye doc nyc/ nj area

Thank you. I received a name from another user. I have floaters - they appeared all the sudden out of nowhere and seems to be getting worse. I also have cloudy vision, eye pain, after images, and little sparkles. It all started in mid-Feb. I have gone to two different ophthalmologists but they couldn't find anything. I suspect that I now have Lyme and have been trying to get in to see a LLMD but it is so difficult to get an appointment. I am very scared - I just dont want the vision to get any worse.
