Let me begin this by saying that I am only 24 years old.
Six weeks after a routine eye exam and new glasses that were adjusted slightly for acuity, I woke up seeing double images with both eyes. The double vision went away when I closed either eye.
I've had blood work done that ruled out any thyroid issues and have been seen by a neurologist who diagnosed me with "complicated migraines" after my MRI, EEG, and cranial-corotid ultersound came back normal. He doesn't want to believe that my eye issues cause the headaches... not the other way around. I was also seen by a eye specialist who ran $800 worth of tests to tell me that I had dry eyes.
All testing was completed in November 2017, my primary doctor suggested the double vision was related to stress as I was taking 5 classes to finish my degree while homeschooling my two children during the time that my husband was in the police academy.
I graduated, double vision didn't go away. I scheduled an appointment with a different optometrist in March 2018 where we all found out that my vision in my left eye was 20/70, at best. Upon dilation, doctor found a spot in my left eye and referred me to a retina specialist the same day.
There's a scar on my macula and I've been told that there is nothing they can do about it. He didn't believe it was macular degeneration, but he couldn't be certain. There was nothing "active" in my left eye and my right eye looked healthy.
The blind spot paired with the double vision is incredibly annoying. I'm also paranoid about losing my vision which has taken a toll on my mental health. Prism doesn't seem to be helping the double vision and my eyes just hurt from straining to see clearly. No one has any answers for me and it is frustrating.
I'm hopeful that someone has experience with this and can direct me to a better understanding or solution.
