I have been experienceing progressively worsening vision problems over the past year. I have floaters, double visiosn, halo's, starbursts, visual snow, sensitivity to lights, etc.... I also have tinnitus 24/7. My blood work is normal except for high cholesterol and a low vit D level. I have been to numerous eye doctors and specialists that say my eyes are fine.
I had a MRI done last week that found a small white matter lesion in my Left Parietal Lobe (I also had 2 very tiny areas of non-specific "increased activity" on last year's MRI - that was my first one ever). My question is could a lesion in the Left Parietal Lobe cause visual defects like progressively worsening double vision, halo's, sparkling lights & starbursts? The original 2 areas have not changed in size or intensity the MRI says.
I have a follow up with my neuro in 2 days, but I wanted to check here to see if anyone has any information that may be able to help me.
