Hi all - I had a stroke a couple of years ago and although it took two years to diagnose, and a cateract to add to the equation my opthalmic consultant says the stroke affected and damaged the part of the brain that controls vision rather than the eyes.themselves. However after the stroke my vision should have remained the same yet it still seems to be deteriorating. One optician told me they do see people with auto immune conditions with cateracts, and this sort of stroke but unable to explain whats happening to me. He says I have the same symptoms as somebody with glaucoma but i dont have glaucoma. Does anybody know if theres a specialist hospital who deals with auto immune conditions and the link between eyes. I want a second opinion as I cant believe I shouldnt be getting treated like someone with glaucoma. I honestly believe im just waiting to go blind. He says he's only see one other woman with this condition and she went blind but cant tell me if it will happen to me. Thanks
