To anyone who suffers from 2x vision. Have you had an MRI done to see the state of your brain that would merge the images together?
I am going in later today to have one done. My neurologist will compare my image with that of a normal brain so that I may see the difference. My plan will be to continue to take my TruBrain supplements and any others the Dr. may suggest. Then, every six months I will take another MRI to check for any improvements. I will post my findings.
I wish you the best, and look forward to the results!
How intriguing. Also look forward to see what happens.
Greg, Do you see a neuro-ophthalmologist? Mine doesn't do an MRI, but does other tests to check out my vision.
I did see double vision for about 3 or 4 months after my AVM surgery. I finally got a new eye perscription last month. My neuro-opthalmologist had to clear me first. They don't do normal eye exams or MRI, but they check for any neuro eye problems caused by the AVM. I have a regular eye perscription now. My AVM surgery was October 2014. Hope this helps a little.
I am fairly new to the site and to the whole concept of AVMs...and need some advice regarding double vision.
My husband has suffered from a bleed, his AVM is inoperable and radiation treatment is not an option either due to its size and location. He is currently in a rehabilitation facility and they have told me that his eyes is hindering his progress to an extent. He is unable to walk properly or co-ordinate his movements. I'm not sure if it is double vision- he says he has blurred vision sometimes, but not always. Has anyone experienced this before? If yes, does walking with double vision get any better after a few months?
I HAD SURGERY ON OCTOBER 2014 AND HAD DOUBLE VISION FOR ABOUT 3 OR 4 MONTHS. MY VISION DID IMPAIR MY BALANCE AND OF COURSE I COULDN'T DRIVE. BUT TIME WILL HEAL IT. I HAD TO SEE A NEURO-OPTHALMOLOGIST WHO KEPT TRACK OF MY VISION. IT TAKES TIME TO HEAL. A COUPLE OF MONTHS AGO I GOT A REGULAR PERSCRIPTION FOR GLASSES, BUT DOUBLE VISION COULD DEFINITELY BE AN ISSUE.
My son had double vision and blurred vision but is much clearer now. He had a test by an ophthalmologist then a preherial vision test to confirm no damage so it appeared to settle on its own.
Ok, great. Hopefully his clears up with time too. Thanks!
I was told that since I had an AVM bleed and craniotomy when I was 9 years old, my brain was still growing and not mature. The AVM was in the visual cortex. I had spots in my eyes pre craniotomy. After, I was told I lost some vision. What I lost was half of my vision in both eyes to the left. Later, a doctor told me since I was a kid when all this occurred, my brain decided which visual signals it used and ignored signals from my left eye. I can see out of my left eye, but only when I close my right eye. Each eye sees but what they see are different from each other because they do not converge and I have little binocularity. If my brain accepted signals from both eyes, that would have caused double vision. I don’t have double vision, and never had it.
I have a similar problem with my eyes not converging, but I have issues from time to time with double vision. My AVM was in my neck, not my brain, so that wasn't the cause. in the past I have had eye care professionals yell at me because my eyes don't converge when they're doing testing. I always have to explain to them that my eyes don't converge, and then they leave me alone. I was wondering if you have gone through any experience like that.
