A member asked:

Which type of symptoms with the eyes does someone with ms (multiple sclerosis) have?

3 doctors weighed in across 2 answers

A VERY FEW: Most frequent is optic neuritis which is loss of vision associated with pain, but if not controlled, could eventuate in optic atrophy. Lesions in brainstem can cause double vision, and sometimes the objects can jump. Pars planitis, a type of uveitis has also been found in ms, and this causes blurring and perhaps eye irritation.

Vision loss pain : Optic neuritis is inflammation of the optic nerves that presents with vision loss, pain with eye movement & "fading vision" when a person gets hot (like in the shower). It is most commonly associated with ms- multiple sclerosis. Ms also causes pars planitis -inflammation in the eye that presents with floaters and/or vision loss. A few of my patients have inflammation in the front of the eye too.
