I see a neuro- Opthomologist.
My specialty Hematologist said I am continuing to have strokes to the optic nerves.
The tiny vessels which supply blood to the optic nerves ( both eyes) , are clotting. ( my INR dips - I can’t keep it stable. I’m taking 17 mg every other day now and 16.5 the others with a target INR of 3.8-4.2
This damage happens quickly. I ( personally...) believe if you have balance problems- this is likely due to spinal nerve damage- and there could be possible a correlation. My heme tells me this is what is happening to me, so why would it not possibly happen to others? So little is know, actually. I encourage you to print off my test results, tell your doctor you also have balance problems, neurological involvement, and maybe should get a base line of thickness of optic nerves. I showed problems on tests before I myself experienced visual impairments by a few years. ( 4?) . My 3-d ability is gone, peripheral vision is greatly reduced, and I just feel very strange in the world. If I’m still it’s better. In the world in motion, when the brain / eyes have to process many things in unison , I have far more trouble. I am technically considered a low vision patient, although my vision is 20/20. I’m over 35% loss/ impaired.
