What Is Wrong With My Eye?

Hi everyone. Well I just heard back from my ophthalmologist after having a visual field test... i did perfectly. no blind spots. my exam was also perfect, just extreme dry eye in the blurry eye. Here's what I notice are my symptoms:

blurred vision in R eye(things are washed out, hazy, less sharp)
eye feels sore, filmy
many floaters in this eye, clear trails and gray dots too
this is a weird one. the blurriness only affects my distance vision, but when i cover my left eye and stare out my right eye is blurry but the objects are closer than in my left. like in zoom, not so much, but definitely a difference. i also get the bold/zoom effect when i am reading closeup, but no blurriness. this is only in the right, bad eye. both eyes are 20/20.

now the doc says my optic nerve is fine, my pupils both dilated okay. visual field ok, MRI brain ok. what is going on? did anyone else have trouble getting optic neuritis diagnosed? i went to a top opthalmologist!! i am also in the process of getting tested with igeneX for lyme disease because the symptoms usually overlap with MS. maybe it isnt ON? No one could find any traces of MS. I understand MS could be difficult to diagnose, but i didn't know that of optic neuritis??? i don't know what to do

Re: What Is Wrong With My Eye?

Only more severe Optical Neuritis tends to show up by looking at the optical nerve. Also, it is possible that the part of the optical nerve that is BEHIND the eye is the part that is inflamed.

There is SO MUCH to the nuances of vision and the tests they docs use only really cover MAJOR signs of disease or problems.

I hope your visual problems clear up very soonest!
