Can you tell me about the problem?
i had an accident hit my head and knocked myself out for fifteen minutes a few days later my left eye was blurry four weeks later my right eye went blurred also i am now left six months on with limited vision in both eyes which is similar to looking through frosted glass i can see colour but cannot focus in on anything distances are impossible to tell and also size of objects as the blurryness distorts everything
i have had xrays a ct scan which showed a lucient line but when i had an mri two weeks later showed no swelling or bleeding in the same area so they ruled this out as a fracture i have seen five eye specialists a neurologist and have also had an eeg and a vep all tests have come back clear any ideas?
That's a tough one.
If the eye itself is intact then we must me dealing with an injury to the occipital cortex - back of the brain where messages from the eye are processed into what we see.
This must be a low grade - diffuse axonal injury which may well be imperceptible on scanning.
Unfortunately there is nothing that can be done for this sort of problem..
