I am 8 weeks post op for a 22mm chairi I and am still having constant oscillopsia or that it looks to me like everything is moving if I move my head or body or eyes. I also have double vision when I look away from center and nystagmus when I look right or left or sometime that just happens. The oscillopsia started two years ago when I was pregnant and has only gotten worse. I was hoping after surgery some of this would improve but it has not at all. I am taking Baclofen that the neuro-ophthalmologist prescribed after surgery but no change. Does anyone else have this? Does it improve at all? I am miserable as I can barely function and have lost all independence.
I'm sorry to read this, as I understand--the visual disturbances were some of the worst symptoms for me. I was fortunate in that there was some relief within a few days of surgery, but reading is still no longer pleasurable at 6 wk post op; it seems exhausting.
I would recommend resting your eyes as much as possible, look into the distance, avoid reading.
Thanks for your responses. I was so hoping to get even some relief. The double vision was much worse after surgery but four weeks later went back to how it was pre surgery. If you dont see improvement at all after surgery does that mean the damage could be permenant?
I hope not! I saw my NS today for 6wk checkup & although he was pleased w/my progress, he said 1-2 yr post op was more indicative of recovery.
He told me to be patient w/remaining symptoms--not easy! :)
