I was wondering how many of you have had bilateral optic neuritis and how many have had unilateral optic neuritis?
I'd really like to know how prevalent bilateral optic neuritis is in MS?
Feb 2009 the eye doctor said I had optic neuritis in my left eye. And he didn't really check my right eye for it, because I can't really see that well out of my right because I have a lazy eye (and it hurts often anyway).
Now I went for a follow-up visit and the opthamologist says after doing a long test, that I had optic neuritis in both eyes. I'm not sure if it was simultaneous or one and then the other.
Hi there.. I dn't have a Dx of ON.. I'm Dx with MS but havn'e tbeen dx with ON. I do have problems with my right eye..pain, achy, behind my right eye. the pain is not stabbing but more of an achy pain, twitching, pulsating eyeball. It comes and goes, I will have it for a month then gone for a few months.
the Neuro opthomo can't see anyting wrong..?? I have double/blurry vision as well and it can get so bad at times that I need to cover one eye to see properly.
I hope to get some answers as they can't figure this one out.. I'm sure alot of people have this too.
