I went for a eye test as i noticed it was more difficult focusing on text on the laptop screen,
As i haven't had my eyes tested for 10 years and never had vision problems or optic neuritis.
This was an MS symptom i never had,
but over the ast 2 years i have noticed my vision reading the laptop, which i spend on most of the day, gets hard to focus on the text but this is corrected if i close one eye (either one), the focus then corrects and i can read fine,
well i saw an optician last week as its been so long, and he said he saw Nystagmus - involuntary shaking/movement of the eye/s, and i was slightly short sighted, they did not see evidence of optic neuritis.
The optician said i was borderline/ just below the legal vision to drive.
This is a problem as i have to drive to get about, as i use a wheelchair when outside for speed & convenience.
So i was wondering if any MS patients have any tips to improve their vision, even if its just for a short period of time, as i need to pass the eye exam next week or i cant drive anymore
I am due to see the optician next week to try some glasses to see if this helps but he's not confident it will as my vision is okay, its just the neurology/MS worsening my eyes, to which he said there is no treatment
when driving i have no vision difficulties seeing anything, but i guess they have these strict vision rules for a reason
- is there any recommended supplements that improve your vision?
i follow the Swank diet with big amounts of organic veg = 12 cups per day of veg, low fats, NO diary/gluten/sugar/soy/legumes
-- also, i it best to turn the backlight on the laptop screen down very low?
i already have an anti-glare screen protector on but dont notice much difference
