Can Celiac Cause Loss Of Vision
Vision impairment and blindness are conditions in which a person cannot see well or see at all, even with glasses or contact lenses. If a person's best vision (with correction) out of either eye is only 20/70 - 20/200, he is impaired. If he can see no better than 20/200 or his visual field is no more than 20 degrees (severe "tunnel" vision), ...Read more
I have a lazy eye and don't wear glasses. Can this aggrevate the condition and ultimately cause loss of vision in my lazy eye? I'm 20 year male.
Recently diagnosed with glaucoma. No peripheral vision loss. 30% optic nerve damage. With treatment will nerve damage cause loss of vision?
Probably not: Glaucoma is readily treated with anti-pressure medication which should prevent any further damage in almost all cases. This is handled by ophthalmologists (you are not seeing an optometrist I hope?) who deal with this daily. There is a step ladder of treatments -- medication, laser, surgery to prevent further damage which can be quite effective. ...Read more
It depends.: The word "temporary" could mean seconds or days. Brief loss of vision could be related to common problems like low blood pressure or migraines. Longer periods of vision loss are often due to more serious problems. In any case, an ophthalmologist and/or neurologist should be involved. ...Read more
No one best answer: Temporary loss my be innocuous. Blurred vision from dryness, wrong glasses, medication side effects are temporary but so are many other more serious conditions that may lead to sudden and maybe permanent loss. Mini strokes to the eye or brain, intermittent glaucoma attacks, optic neuritis, small hemorrhages in the eye (diabetics) to name a few. See your eye md asap. ...Read more

Maybe: Depending on your definition of loss of vision, and whether you are talking about an eye allergy or a systemic allergy, it is possible. Blurred vision is not uncommon in eye allergies, and also when treating allergies with oral antihistamines. A systemic allergic reaction should not cause vision loss (darkened vision). This should be immediately evaluated by an eye doctor. ...Read more
Temporarily: Scotomata and hemianopsia are common components of migraine. Visual illusions with progressive loss of half of the visual field is a common presentation for a migraine event. This usually recovers even before the headache begins. In women on birth control there have been reports of permanent loss of visual function due to ischemia of the occipital lobe of the brain. Fortunately, this is rare. ...Read more

Hey docs, I am wondering if there are any hereditary causes of progressive loss of vision to complete blindness that typically don't occur until an adult/elderly?
Yes: The most common in this category is one of the family of diseases that cause retinal degeneration termed retinitis pigmentosa. There are also some cornea diseases that can do this also although corneal transplantation frequently can help these. There are a few rare optic nerve diseases inherited that do this with names like Lebers disease and choroideremia. ...Read more
Optic neuropathy: This is a classic symptom of ischemic optic neuropathy although it usually occurs in the upper visual fields. Other possibilities include retinal detachments, arterial occlusions of the retina, infections, and autoimmune disease of the retinal vascular system. The list is extensive and this just names a few ...Read more
No: Paint thinner is caustic and can cause significant ocular damage if prolonged contact occurs. If you flush it out quickly, severe injury can be avoided. Vision after a corneal burn from paint thinner will be poor immediately after the injury but should improve as the eyes heal. The final vision varies depending on the extent of the injury. ...Read more
Can you tell me the leading causes of loss of vision. List as many as possible not just 1 answer. Can it be curable without laser treatment?
Two categories: 1) permanent loss: inherited disease, birth defects, severe injury, advanced diabetic disease, retinal vascular occlusion brain stroke, macular degeneration--and others 2) correctable loss: glaucoma, cataracts, vitamin deficiencies, surface infection, corneal opacities, multiple sclerosis, early diabetic changes -- and others. There are many paths to correction or cure; laser also. ...Read more

See an Eye MD ASAP.: Your symptoms could be from a mild chemical poisoning. If you are taking hydrocodone or Codeine for cough it could cause blurry vision. What is your line of work? Exposure to lacquer or lacquer thinner can cause cough, blurred vision and lightheadedness. I once saw a road worker with same symptoms and he was allergic to asphalt and its chemicals. Metal cleaners is another one. ...Read more
