Hist. Of pituitary tumors. Has one removed 5/23/13. Sudden onset of blurry vision in left eye. See dr? What could cause this?

I would recommend thyroid levels be checked along with a visual field test of your peripheral vision and an MRI or CT scan of your "orbits" to check for tumor or enlarged musces from abnl thyroid. Unlikely a tumor ...Read more

I feel that my left eye is starting to bulge. What could cause this? I had a CT scan, would a tumor behind the eye have shown up?

OPtho Consult: I recommend you see an experienced ophthalmologist. Eye bulging can come from a number of cause including autoimmune diseases such as graves disease. An MRI could be considered if the cat scan was negative and no clinical cause can be determined on physical exam. ...Read more
