I was hit by a bike on 6 March and suffered concussion, and now seem to have post concussion syndrome. Initially I went back to work quickly, but have ended up being signed off work – I am now on my seventh week off. I wondered whether others have experienced the eye problems I have: my eyes feel extremely tired if I read for more than 30 minutes and I feel nauseous and headachy. I have other post concussion symptoms as well: I find face-to-face meetings and phone calls very tiring, am forgetful, and struggle to organise things.
I have had my eyes tested and been given a slightly altered prescription, but that hasn’t made any difference. The optician is also treating me for dry eyes, but I’ve been using the treatment for six weeks now so I suspect the dryness has improved. I have an ophthalmology appointment on 2 July.
Has anyone else had this type of eye symptoms, and if so, any tips for recovery?
