From my experience with MS (which is limited but I am newly diagnosed) diplopia (sp?) aka double vision and blurry vision can happen with an exacerbation of MS. Using an eye patch I have been told does not "speed" up recovery. However, wearing an eye patch may help your balance and with bumping into things, it did so with me at least. I still have balance issues and still bump into things but not as much. However, depth perception is off. I recommend going to an ophthalmologist. The nerves are attached to the muscles and that is what is messing with your vision most likely, however seeing a doctor is a good idea. Currently, I am unable to drive due to double and blurry vision and would be a hazard on the road to myself and others. I would talk to a close friend or family member, schedule an appointment and get a ride to an eye doctor. I recommend skipping the optometrist as when I went to the optometrist they made me an immediate referral for the ophthalmologist so you might save some time and a copay this way. Good luck. Don't be ashamed if the eye patch helps you. This isn't about looking like a pirate -- it's about getting better and living your life as comfortably and "unblurry" as possible. Best of luck to you.
