Welcome to Just Answer

What symptoms are you experiencing in the eye? Apart from motion sickness, are you experiencing any reduced vision , altered colour vision, pain in the eye?

Have you got your eye examined recently?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.

no other problems with the eye.

I had my eyes looked at and I have another test in a couple of weeks. They will be taking a picture of the nerve. During regular check up he noticed the nerve was larger than normal.

If at all the nerve at the back of your eye ( called optic nerve) was not sending correct messages to the brain , you would have surely experienced visual complaints such as reduced vision , altered colour vision and sometimes pain on moving the eyeball. Since you have none of these symptoms, atleast it is sure that the optic nerve is functioning normally. If the nerve was found to be larger than normal on routine examination then it could be due to optic nerve head drusen ( hyaline bodies deposit) or glaucomatous cupping ( but associated with reduced vision) or congenitally large disc. Unless you have symptoms pertaining to the optic nerve , it is unlikely that it is functioning abnormally.
