About two weeks ago, I had a sudden painful deterioration in vision in my right eye and blurred vision in the left. When I went to the optician they reported that there was a corrected distance visual acuity of right eye 6/6- and left eye 6/6+, near n.5 individually.

The report also stated normal intra-ocular pressures, right ocular discharge bilateral cornel epithelial erosions (worse in the right eye), normal pupillary reflexes bilaterally, minimal lenticular opacities and pink optic discs with distinct margins, cup-disc ratio 0.1 bilaterally.
The clinical assessment was a bilateral corneal punctate epithelial erosions (worse on the right) and bacterial conjunctivitis.

I was treated with Gutt Ciprofloxacin and Occ Tobramycin (both eyes).

At my follow up appointment I was told the erosions had healed and prescribed Gutt Ivymoicell.

At this point my vision has still not returned to normal even when I wear my glasses and I'm concerned that my treatment plan might not be the best. Can you please advice if laser surgery will be necessary or if I need to seek a second opinion or simply carry on with the current treatment plan?

Please help.

  • I am having the same exact symptoms and since I have had MS for 23 years, I went to my neurologist who said I was having an optical neurotitis attack which is fairly typical as an MS symptom. It is also typically the first symptom presented before MS I'd diagnosed. I did not notice the date of your post but am wondering how you are doing now?
