How are floaters a sign of MS? I have floaters, with a little of sensitivity to light as well. When I move my eyes, look into light, it becomes blur

How are floaters a sign of MS? I have floaters, with a little of sensitivity to light as well.  When I move my eyes, look into light, it becomes blur

Not true: "Floaters" are definitely not a sign of MS or even a symptom. Sensitivity to light is not specific to MS either. If you are referring to the possibility of having an optic neuritis then, I would recommend visual evoked potentials if you're looking for a TEST that may be able to give a bit more support to the picture but otherwise, so far what you've described is not MS. Good luck. ...Read more

How to deal with a corneal ulcer I went to the outpatient clinic yesterday because I had pain in my eye, redness, and sensitivity to light. Thought perhaps pink eye but the doctor there told me it was small corneal ulcer. He prescribed two eye drops, ci

How to deal with a corneal ulcer I went to the outpatient clinic yesterday because I had pain in my eye, redness, and sensitivity to light.  Thought perhaps pink eye but the doctor there told me it was small corneal ulcer.  He prescribed two eye drops, ci

Zylet : Zylet is an unusual medication for a corneal ulcer. And infect, it is the wrong medicine for you. You are already on gentamicin and the active antibiotic in zylet is tobrmycin which is a same class of medicine as gentamicin. You will be served better with ciprofoloxacin than zylet. Zylet also has steroid in it, which makes it a wrong medicine for corneal ulcer.

You said you went to see "opt", I presume that you mean optometrist. I strongly recommend seeing an ophthalmologist. If you can find a cornea specialist that will be better. Good luck. ...Read more
