Opthomologist

I finally broke down and called my Opthomologist. The receptionist wanted to speak with the DR and said she would call me back ASAP.

I haven't been able to see right since the ACDF on March 2. My eye lid is heavy and the eye is red, but does not hurt. My vision is very blurry and it is causing me issues, not to mention I look weird. I have taken to wearing sun glass's indoors if I have to go any where.

I am seriouslu hoping this has nothing to do with the Narrow Angle Glaucoma that I was DX'd with back in December. It would really suck if this is permanent.

    I hope you hear back from the doctor soon. It's scary when there's a problem with our vision. Hopefully it's something that can be treated quickly. Are you taking any meds that may be messing with your vision?
    Take care,

  • He says I have Horners Syndrome. Apparently it is pretty common for cervical fusions. If it does not get better in 6 weeks he can do something to fix it.

  • I have horners. I went to the Opthomologist to get a full checkup. I don't have the blurry vision but I have the eyelid droop and a smaller pupil in the right eye.

    The neuro ordered an MRI and CT to make sure there were no blood clots or debris pressing on a nerve. That was all fine so they say to wait. It could take a year or more to go away. If it doesnt there is a cosmetic procedure to fix the eyelid.

    More than anything I find the eyelid annoying because it feels heavy. Yesterday I saw my ortho and I found it funny how he was staring at my eye - lol. It's not noticable unless you know its there.
