have you had an MRI of the brain?

No, no MRI has been done
Eye Doctor: Dr. Phil, MD, Medical Doctor replied 3 years ago
You absolutely need an MRI of the brain.
The trauma could have caused damage to the brain or optic nerve that your doctor cannot see

not recently but at the time of the injury they did one and it proved ok. Along with constant on and off inflammation and pain the eye has had chronic infections and sudden stabing type pain from the back of the eye?
Eye Doctor: Dr. Phil, MD, Medical Doctor replied 3 years ago
I think you need a repeat MRI at this point
the area that was damaged may have looked normal initially

my current opthalmologist has done many eye exams to the back of the eye and no resolution to what the cause of the vision loss

Customer reply replied 3 years ago
the eye does look normal and looks as if nothing wrong, how is this possible?
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
mainly pain at night and severe light sensitivity
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
I have recently been diagnosed diabetic but the vision problem started after the injury not recently
Eye Doctor: Dr. Phil, MD, Medical Doctor replied 3 years ago
You have to make sure the optic nerve is okay with an MRI
it could be your optic nerve...in your brain
