Hi guys. I'm new to this board but I've read other posts.
As shortly as possible, I wanted to describe what I've been experiencing hoping someone else has some insight:
About 6 weeks ago I noticed my right eye had a funny distortion. For example, if I look at a digital clock, if it reads 7:33, the last "3" appears distorted, or a bit higher than it actually is. I went to an eye Dr. who said I had a slightly swollen optic nerve. Little did I know at the time that that is a pretty serious thing. I was sent to a retinal specialist who immediately sent me to a neurologist because she wanted to make sure I didn't have MS. Neuro sent me to MRI which came back Negative; he said my optic nerve might be slightly swollen or that maybe that's just how my eye is and he wasn't worried about it from a Neuro's perspective. Back to Rentinal specialist, who looked at my eye again and now she thought maybe by eye just has a little more spinal fluid than others but is now sending me to a Neuro-ophamologist "to make sure". In the mean time, I have no clue what is causing my eye to distort like this and neither does anyone else apparently. The Neuro-O is backlogged for 4 months. In the meantime, it's a wait and see thing I guess. If you google "amsler grid"; it's a helpful tool to check your vision. As I stare at the black dot in the center with my right eye, the grid just to the right of the dot has wavy lines and/or a blank spot of some kind. It's pretty minor but in the center of my vision so even reading is a bit annoying (which is 100% of my job on a computer). I've always had floaters and this is different. I also have this shadow type thing in the far peripheral part of my vision in my right eye. The retinal specialist says my eye looks perfect; macula is perfect...
Any help would be great and sorry for the novel-like explaination.
