Signs Of Vision Problems In Toddlers
Do vision problems like blurry or double vision come and go with ms or do they stick around after they start? at what point should you get glasses?
Optic Neuritis: Vision loss in multiple sclerosis is secondary to optic neuritis, which often resolves mostly if not totally. Color vision and contrast sensitivity may remain impaired even when visual acuity improves. No harm in wearing glasses, but see a low vision specialist to avoid the intellectually-barren "balance lens." Double vision can be due to intranuclear ophthalmoplegia or a cranial neuropathy. ...Read more
I just got diagnosed with ms. I had left eye vision problems but today i woke up with shooting pains in my lower back to my knees. Any clues?

Depending on how long you have had the symptoms, and if symptoms are worsening, a brain tumor is a possibility, and can be ruled out by a careful eye examination or CT scan. ...Read more

Uncorrected vision problems in childhood can lead to permanent inability to see in the affected eye (amblyopia). Cataracts, glaucoma and retinal problems can occur in children but are far less common than refractive error. ...Read more
Common: Older adults have the accumulated changes in refraction acquired through the years. To this is added any diseases they might have acquired which might cause vision problems such as diabetes, glaucoma, etc. And finally the additional vision issue related to middle age after age 40 (presbyopia) when near correction is needed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
