Hi, I am a 28 year old female. I had a squint at birth and needed glasses at 12. I have been under eye hospital since then. let me just list eye probs 1st.
squint in right eye
nystagmus in both
short sighted left is 2/20 right is 3/20
now on top of this i have
some loss of periphial vision in both more in left
loss of central vision
abnormality on retina
dreadful floaters flashers
pain behind left eye and at side
white blobs come and go
double vision
as you can imagine this is awful and i am getting scared. I have eye tests every 3 months and my sight gets worse every time. I have had no diagnosis and don't get it. I had toxoplasmosis as a child. The hospital just don't tell me anything. Had every test going. any ideas? thanks

  • Some things can't be helped, but I do hope that you find help. I had an eye problem. The first doctor misdiagnosed it. The second didn't know what it was. The 3rd knew and said I'd go blind. A recommendation for a local opthalamologist from the Ohio Eye Institute worked out for me - that guy knew what was wrong AND fixed me. I met another lady going blind and nobody knew what was wrong, so I sent her to my opthalomologist. He knew -- it was a congential problem and she would likely gop blind, but referred her to Mayo clinic just to be sure. Unfortunately, He was right. Some suggestions: Consult with a NEUROopthalamologist. See a mitochondrial disorders specialist. Go to an eye reasearch institute. Go to Mayo Clinic. -Naomi
