My 24 year old daughter had a lazy eye

Posted by @diane25, Mar 31, 2016

My 24 year old daughter had a lazy eye when she was in first grade that has been treated. Back in December she had her routine eye exam and after eye dialation her lazy eye (right eye) was blurry. Well, she has been to four opthalmalogists and her primary care physician regarding the eye blurriness and no one can help. Her pediatric opthalmalogist who originally treat her said (like the others) that her eye is fine and there is no indication of anything on his end. All the other docs said the same. Her primary care said right now she seems to have migraines but all docs agree she does not need a ct scan right now. We are not sure what else to do at this stage but she feels her vision is getting worse. Please help since no one else can.

Hi @diane25 and welcome to Connect. I can’t believe how frustrating this must be.
If you like, you can request an appointment with Mayo Clinic here: http://mayocl.in/1mtmR63

In the meantime, I also wanted to provide you with the symptom checker for vision problems:http://www.mayoclinic.org/symptom-checker/vision-problems-adult/related-factors/itt-20009075

Migraines can also cause changes to vision. How does your daughter manage her migraines?

I’m also tagging Connect members @fedge @kimh33 @FaceNu @debburrington @beccahp, all who have been dealing with migraines and some with vision issues. Hopefully they will join this thread and share their experiences.

Hi @diane25! I am sorry your daughter is not well! Have y’all been to a neuro-opthamologist? They can do a test to see exactly what of her vision is being affected. The migraine was causing my daughter to have major vision loss. This test helped us to know exactly how bad it was. She has not had another test since, but she does well in life. I think most of the vision loss has cleared up since the migraine is not so hurtful every minute of every day anymore. The migraine stays at a 1-2 all day everyday now… Instead of a 7-9. The folks at Mayo could probably find a neuro-opthomologist for you or they might have one on staff. I would check there first. Best wishes! @beccahp
