Hello, I've been having some eye...
Hello,
I've been having some eye issues with some ghosting, almost double imaging, on text which is either bright or in high contrast areas such as white text or light text on a black background. The symptoms get better generally as the day goes on but it never fully goes away (when I wake up it's the worst).
I also have a similar issue staring directly at a car light...it seems to almost streak a bit.
I've been checked by a neurologist and they have indicated I have no neurological symptoms, I've had a head/neck CT scan and nothing showed (with contrast dye).
I also had an eye doctor check me out at the hospital and he indicated my eyes are perfectly healthy. Not sure where to go from here but it's really annoying.

Hello, thanks for your question. Have you ever had any surgical procedures on the eye?

Hello!

No I've never had any eye procedures relating to my eyes.
What kind of doctor is examining your eyes? A specialist?

I've had them looked at by an Ophthalmologist; but they weren't able to find anything. The health of the eyes themselves is great base don the tests they did.
I'm stumped! I'll opt out and let another expert help you

Hello JACustomer,

I hope I can help you out here. Online no one can state with certainty what may be; all we can do is offer a good educated guess as to what it might be possibly. I understand you have been to neurologists and eye doctors, and have had CT scan of the brain to see if there is any problems there. However, what I can suggest that you seem to have not done is to see an neuro-optometrist. Many professionals are not even aware that this extreme sub specialty even exists, and what they do is to test and examine the neurological connections between the eyes and the brain to see if there is a problem there. After assessment and an exam, its possible a program of vision therapy may help you.

Here is the web site of SUNY Optometry, they are based in Manhattan, NY, and they are one of the best places for vision therapy and opto-neurology. I realize you are in Canada, but they may be able to refer you to someone. http://www.sunyopt.edu/uec/eyecare_for_adults/vision_therapy

Neuro-optometrists differ from neuro opthamologists because the neuro optometrist focuses on the way the eye sees, and moves, and its nerve connections between eye and brain. I was seen by a neuro-optometrist myself for a vision related issue. Examples of tests I had were tests to see how my eyes processed the visual impulse, and how my eyes moved, and if the abnormal movements were neurologically caused. I am in visual therapy because of a very odd form of vertigo which is visually mediated.

In many studies of many visual problems, vision therapy has proven to be useful. Its been used effectively with Traumatic Brain Injury, Strabismus, Vertigo, and many other disorders.

I hope I was able to help,
Sincerely,
Susan
