My nephew is 21 yrs old. He is a healthy, active teenager, just enrolled in the University. 4 months ago, he complained of blurred vision. Check into a hospital to have the necessary tests. The hospital did 2 MRIs & found nothing sinister. Several other tests were done for his lost vision. All tests came out to be negative ie. retina test, nerves test etc. The professor at the hospital said he is fine and he will soon regain his vision. No medicine was prescribed. All other medical avenues said the same. We sent him to a psychiatrist. After the first session, the doctor discharged him. Said he is well & needs no further investigation. The family is at their wits end. It's going on to 5 months now and he is not showing any sign of sight recovery. He can't read. He can't go out at night 'cos he can't see in the dark. During the day, he can only make out blurred vision at a distance, not up close. Would like to seek advice from the Forum or if anyone reading this have a similar experience. We need help. What can we do for this young man? Please help.
