I had a stroke on Nov. 3rd 2008 in my sleep. Woke with headache pain on right side and tingleing but no wekness. The wierd thing is the only thing affected seems to be my right eye it pains, the colors are dim. and contrast is off. Anyone else experience this. The stroke association say its very odd for stroke damage to have only affected one eye with no other symptoms
I, too hve pain in my left eye and blurred vision (my left side was affected due to the stroke). The opthomologist did ststae my eyes suffered nerve damage (nystagmus). He stated that the pain was due to extreme dry and not the stroke. I had an eye exam prior to my stroke and my vision was ok. I am going to schedule an eye exam to see what they tell me....I hope to follow up with better news.
