Do not Strain !: You need to go see an ophthalmologist. Floaters and flickering spot with strain could be a sign of vitreous hemorrhage or retinal detachment. Go to ophthalmologist asap. This is most likely not stroke. ...Read more

Husband had eye stroke had dopplar & mta dopplar showed blood flow no blockage mta showed severe stenosis carotid artery how does this happen next cta?

Carotid stenosis: If severe, greater than 60%, then you should consider a potential entarterectomy or even stunting to prevent additional stroke events. Some evidence to suggest also, potential benefit of anti-platelet medication such as Aggrenox and a statin. Discuss with a stroke neurologist, and a vascular surgeon. ...Read more

Can the eye have a stroke? If so, what can happen to the vision?

Can the eye have a stroke?  If so, what can happen to the vision?

Yes: Such an event is the result of a retinal artery occlusion and the result is loss of vision in the effected eye. As in a brain stroke, time is of the essence as far as initiation of treatment is concerned. Even with early treatment, only 20-30% of cases will retain useful vision in the eye. ...Read more

I've lost vision in my right eye due to a stroke, are monoculars ideal for me?

I've lost vision in my right eye due to a stroke, are monoculars ideal for me?

Not sure what u mean: I am not sure what you mean when you say "monoculars". I assume you mean single glass lenses instead of bifocals. If that's what you mean, then there is no answer to your question. The answer is "whatever makes you more comfortable and happy". Some monocular patients love bifocals, and some don't. It's a personal preference only you can answer. ...Read more

What are the side effects of laser eye operations for ophthalmic strokes?

What are the side effects of laser eye operations for ophthalmic strokes?

Depends: Lots of assumptions here. Assuming you are referring to either a artery or vein occlusion of the retina ("ophthalmic stroke"), laser is sometimes done to the retina to prevent further damage. Common side effects are minimal pain during the procedure and loss of vision wherever the laser procedure is done. Vision is already likely gone from the area if laser is being considered. ...Read more

My whole left side of body from face to toes went numb and could only see out one eye. Was this a stroke? Now have horrible headache.

Unlikely stroke: Instead, would bet that you suffer from classical migraine and you just experienced your first whopper of an aura. However, contact your doctor and get examined, as I am not privy to your history, exam findings or other issues; and you may well need more extensive interventions and treatments. ...Read more

Has anyone ever had a stroke of the eye signalled by aura?

Yes: Retinal artery blockage is caused by atherosclerosis of the retinal artery or its upstream suppliers. Occasionally clots can embolize (originate from a distant location to obstruct another blood vessel) to the retinal artery. Visual symptoms may precede such blockage if it is not abrupt. ...Read more

Returned from congo brazza to rsa, my eft eye is not syncronised with right eye. Images split when looking nown right. Scan: no stroke/tumors. ?

Returned from congo brazza to rsa, my eft eye is not syncronised with right eye. Images split when looking nown right. Scan: no stroke/tumors. ?

Eye movers: Not sure what rsa means but your eye problem is most likely a disorder in which means an eye muscle in one eye is not functioning well, possibly because a nerve to that muscle malfunctions. Double vision on downgaze can be seen in nerve damage near the brainstem from a variety of causes but because the nerve involved is so small, even powerful scanners may be unable to detect them. See eye doc 1st. ...Read more
