Question Left eye vision

Hi guys,
Can anyone give me advise..... i've got a big problem with my left eye. In the beginning when i was first diagnose with MS 8 years ago my eye will go blurry and after awhile it will get better.

My left eye started blurrying about two months ago and it hasn't been better yet. I have completely lost my vision in the eye. I went to my neuro last week. I have done another MRI Scan and nothing is refleting anything.

Is there anybody who ever lost his vision becoz of MS?????

Any advise will be appreciated.

Re: Left eye vision

The only vision losses I'm aware of are temporary. Have you been checked for cataracts?

Good luck to you,

Re: Left eye vision

Hi, Natasha. It's unfortunately not impossible for visual impairment caused by things like optic neuritis to be permanent, depending if there is just inflammation or damage to the nerve itself. However, if it IS ON, 2 months is not a long time to be blurry and not have damage so I wouldn't worry just yet. But, I WOULD go see an ophthalmologist right away and if you have access to a NEURO-ophthalmologist where you are, that would be preferable.

Good luck and please let us know how you make out.
