Has anyone experienced vision problems and loss of vision in one eye?

Hello. I am newly diagnosed with MS. I woke up the other morning with my right eye killing me and it felt like it was going to pop out. Went to the doctor and my pupils were not reacting like they should so they sent me to the eye doctor. Long story short, MRI revealed I have MS. Has anyone experienced vision problems and loss of vision in one eye?

  1. Hi, ! I am sorry you are dealing with a diagnosis of MS. To answer your question, yes, many of our members have experienced MS related vision issues and some, like you, have been diagnosed after a vision event. Here's some basic information on MS related vision issues -- https://multiplesclerosis.net/symptoms/vision-problems/. And here is one of our contributor's experience with optic neuritis (check out the many reader comments following the article for more member input) -- https://multiplesclerosis.net/living-with-ms/poor-vision-what-is-optic-neuritis/. You're definitely not alone in this!

      A vision problem (nystagmus) was one of the first symptoms I had that eventually led me to a neurologist which diagnosed me with ms.
