I was involved in a bike/auto accident 2 months ago where I ran into an oncoming van that had turned in front of me. The front right side of my head/face took most of the force into the side of the van. I was knocked out briefly and taken to the hospital. Brain/face CT came back clear. Have been diagnosed with Post Concussion Syndrome. Am still dealing with executive function problems with specific issues with visual scanning.
Since my accident, I've been experiencing narrowed focus for both near and far objects. My peripheral vision seems fine, but have to make an effort to focus on objects. I have trouble focusing on the "big picture" if that makes sense. It feels like my right eye is working harder than the left. During exercise with elevated heart rate my right eye feels as there's an increase in eye pressure in the right eye.
Up till this point, I've seen my general physician and a neuropsychologist. Should I be seeking an ophthalmologist as well?
Hey. I suffered a mild concussion in january 2010 and am still suffering w PCS. I too have vision problems. More like just harlot focus and my eyes don't move well with my head movements. I have been outbid any physical activity since the incident. How are you doing now?

I had taken an over the counter medication and it eased the pressure its back with a vengence..
