I was diagnosed w/ Third Nerve Palsy about a month ago. They have ruled out anurisym, stroke, there is no high blood pressure, and I am not diabetic. I woke up w/ normal vision about a week ago but have now relapsed a small amount. My eyes seem tired, and I am having some trouble w/ my right eye not "catching up" w/ my left eye when I scan a room or outdoors. I am wondering if there is anything I can do to make this heal faster, or if glasses will help in making my vision stronger?
I am not a MD but my daughter had the flu-mist and about 3-6 mo later we noticed her eye was wondering and a droopy lid. she was diagnosed with a 3rd nerve palsy after an eye exam revealed a dialated pupil in the same droopy eye. Everything was ruled out with MRI's and CT scans and has never had a head trauma. I was wondering if you had been exposed to a flu-mist or anything else that you may have not thought would have caused this. She has undergone 1 surgery for the muscles of the eye and will have a 2nd for the lid lift. We traced it back to the flu mist through pictures and timing.
