Here is My Question:
I have been using my eyes more lately (I’m a teacher and back to work). I’ve had more issues with blurriness or not being able to track or focus quickly lately. Is there anything I can do do help my situation? Supplements? Is this something I should consult my eye doctor on?
The answer to that question depends on what type of eye problems you have had previously due to your MS.
Many patients with MS who have had optic neuritis before may notice issues with depth perception after they recovery from the optic neuritis.
Alternatively MS can effect the nerves that control eye movements. Any discoordination of eye movements can lead to problems with blurry vision, double vision or trouble tracking/focusing.
I recommend seeing both your ophthalmologist and neurologist if the symptoms persist.
