Annalynette, sorry to hear that your vision is making things interesting. If only the improvement would return and stay.
Do you have EDS? I ask because my son has had episodes of variable vision and has EDS.
He has had double vision (wears prisms) for around two years. After a second acupuncture treatment for chronic headaches, he woke up during the night and could see clearly for the first time in over 20 months without his prism glasses. He also had depth vision during the episode which he lost as a young child.
In the morning, his double vision had returned. Since then he has had two very short “flashes” of seeing depth.
Doctors have no explanation. He does not have evidence of papilledema, according to his pediatric opthalmologist.
I wonder what vision changes like these might mean. Might temporary restoration of nerve function be a plausible explanation? I’m not a doctor, just guessing and wondering.
I hope things work out for you. Dealing with vision issues and unknowns is certainly challenging, so I empathize with what you’ve experienced. Take good care!
