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

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

I do have retinal issues due me having bad eyes but today I was pushing myself on the bike and had flickering spot in corner of eye. Stroke?

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

37 yr old stroke victim brain scan shows eye movement & response to pain. On ventilator; top of skull may be removed 2 less pressure. Is this progress?

37 yr old stroke victim brain scan shows eye movement & response to pain. On ventilator; top of skull may be removed 2 less pressure. Is this progress?

Decompressive Crani: After large strokes, brain develops swelling usually between 3-5 days after stroke. This requires decompressive hemi crani, which removes bony skull from same side of stroke. This is beneficial to be for within 48 hrs of stroke. It's hard to say this is progress and improvement based on your provided history. ...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

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

Ophthalmic Migraine: Visual symptoms before, during or after a headache is not uncommon. Could be an aura associated with a headache or migraine or ophthalmic migraine (where sometime only get visual disturbance but no headache). See eyeMD to be sure your optic nerve and confrontation visual field, vision is normal. ...Read more

Complex,: Complex, involuntary movements of the face and tongue generally fall under the heading of "dyskinesia", which is not a diagnosis. Dyskinesia can be a feature of a number of different conditions, including parkinson's disease, or as the result of history of treatment with prescriptoin medications that include antipsychotics (medications given for treatment of conditions like schizophrenia) and antiemetics (medications given for nausea), or even at the result of intoxication with recreational drugs (such as methamphetamine). ...Read more

Can an optometrist examine your eyes and tell if have had a stroke or some sort of head injury?

Can an optometrist examine your eyes and tell if have had a stroke or some sort of head injury?

Certainly: The optometrist might find a specific pattern of vision loss, or might generally notice some interactional problems such as speech difficulties. But if there are acute issues such as trauma or abrupt changes, best place to evaluate, in this situation is the emergency room. ...Read more

What can cause childlike speech, head pain, eyes bouncing, tounge flickering in an adult? Stroke and tumor already ruled out

Unclear: Depends on age, which help frame potential causes. Given this limited information, may consider a medication side effect. The tongue effect may be tardive dyskinesia.
May also be schizophrenia or related conditions.
Definitely needs further evaluation- consider a neurologist. ...Read more

65 female with history of stroke has severe narrowing on right carotid has passed out and fallen eye sight blurry should stents be done?

Carotid narrowing: If stroke affected right brain and carotid narrowed over 50% then endarterectomy (CEA) is option. CEA has lower stroke rate than stent but higher risk of other problems. One option for you is to go to a provider that does both CEA and carotid stents. Decreased vision and falling often not related to carotid stenosis so thorough cardiac & neuro evaluation necessary before intervention. ...Read more

If you already have a bad eye (damaged from optic nerve stroke and glaucoma) and your eyes still hurt, how can you make the pain go away?

If you already have a bad eye (damaged from optic nerve stroke and glaucoma) and your eyes still hurt, how can you make the pain go away?

See your doctor...: Optic nerve ischemia (stroke) typically doesn't present with pain, nor does glaucoma. Optic neuritis or inflammatory conditions involving the optic nerve may warrant urgent treatment, particularly if you are experiencing vision changes. If your symptoms are unilateral and acute, I would call your ophthalmologist tonight. ...Read more

Every time I stroke my cats I get swollen, red, itchy eyes (sometimes is only one) am I allergic to cats? Never had this problem before now.

Is this a pending stroke? I was pushing myself really hard on the stationary bike then all of sudden I saw a flickering spot in corner of right eye.

Stoke in 25 yr old: It would be unusual for a 25 yr old to have a stoke but it is possible. It is also possible that this could be a migraine equivalent or retinal issue. I suggest that you see an eye doctor to get an evaluation. ...Read more

For three days I have been seeing black lines in my right eye. It floats around but is very annoying. Is this something to worry about. I had a bleeding stroke in dec of 2006 and Crohn's disease in 2007. I am a 57 year old female.

Floaters: Floaters are thickenings in the vitreous jelly inside the eye. They are common with age, myopia, inflammation, trauma, and other issues. They are benign and do not damage your vision. Rarely, they can cause retinal tears which may require laser treatment. Otherwise, no treatment is needed. In very rare cases, the floaters can become dense enough to block vision and may need surgical removal. ...Read more
