I have very blurred vision and have to make the pages 4 times bigger than normal size and that is WITH my glasses on. It is getting very frustrating and I have twice complained to oc about it... I had my eyes checked off specialist doc and he said my eyes are healthy and look good but the vision is the Optician had to give me better glasses... might as well get two bottle bottoms and make do.. sigh

Sometimes, when I get up during the night, I see a complicated grid pattern superimposed over my field of vision. I often wonder if I am actually perceiving the cells in the back of my eye?.

Another odd experience I have had, which frightened me a little, I was walking along a beach, started to feel a bit dizzy, when my field of vision in my right eye narrowed to form a tunnel of sparkling lights. After I had sat down for a few minutes all came back to normal. Very weird.
I don't like pain because it hurts.

I wish I was tough as my cat, she removed her own stiches and never complains of hurts or pains.

Hi Ness

I do suffer with problems with my vision and sight. This seems to be getting progressively worse. I know that I am getting on a bit (44) but the deterioration is rapid to say the least. I have had a few episodes of dizziness and completely blurred/double vision for up to an hour and a half, then it eventually settles down. But it really scares me. I have bad floaters and diffuculties focusing on things - I also have problems with night vision whilst driving, in fact I dread going out in the car at night, its going to be a nightmare now the clocks have gone back.

Hi, I too am new to this site, but have found it very valuable. I have been diagnosed about 9 months but I have had symptoms for about 8 years, since my son was born.. I too also get visual disturbances, which I find very difficult at times. My vision is blurred and I have "bad eye days"..just cant concentrate, difficulty following the computer screen when it scrolls down. Night driving is horrid! I also have the pain, fatigue and a few more like everyone here. I am currently working (off sick at the moment, for a couple of weeks) as a Nurse Specialist and I do find it a challenge, dealing with complex issues etc etc..what a wolly I feel!!...My GP does not really understand so I am just stuggling on at the moment...
