Multiple Sclerosis Fact #5 – Vision Problems

msfacts5

Before I had any idea that MS was what I was dealing with, I would at times wake up seeing double.  It was more frustrating than anything else.  I figure that if I drove it would have also been dangerous.  During this time, my vision also went to black and white for a while.  Many people would see their eye doc right away, I had an appt in a month, so I waited.  By the time I got in to see the dr, double vision was gone, and the color started to return to my eyes.  Upon hearing my symptoms the dr. sent me to have my optic nerve scanned.  It was pale. He said that most likely, I had optic neuritis.  I still have lots of trouble seeing.  Right now my computer view is 125%!
