Hi. I'm Dr. Rick and I have two decades of ophthalmology and retina surgery experience. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.

Ask Your Own Eye Question

Pseudotumor does not normally cause rapid eye movements.

I can, however, cause blurry vision.

So. What should you do?

I'd suggest you see your ophthalmologist for a dilated eye exam to evaluate your optic nerves etc for any evidence of recurrence to be on the safe side...

Does this make sense to you?

I am happy to be able to help you today. If you would be so kind, please help me get credit for my efforts in answering your questions and press the excellent feedback button for this encounter.

it does make sense. I was wondering what is causing the rapid eye movements though. also i won't be able to see my doctor for the pseudo tumor for months, it's very hard to get an appointment with him.
Thank you.

I have surgery in the morning and was just going over the case charts....

You can see any general ophthalmologist and she will be able to evaluate you for recurrence of your pseudotumor and also evaluate and workup your rapid eye movements
