Can anyone tell me what pre-warning signs of sight loss I should be concerned about? Seven months ago I had visual problems in my left eye, the only way I can describe it is a similarity to the circling on an ipad when opening it and closing it. Iridiscent almost sparkling white fragmented circles rotating slowly around my eye, it tended to last about 2 minutes. I found it highly disconcerting particularly as 2 eye tests in January revealed nothing wrong. I still don't know if it was connected to GCA which I was later diagnosed with.
Opthalmologist thought it could be macular degeneration or GCA, someone else suggested it could a torn retina. But no health professionals seemed to recognise my description of visual effects so none the wiser.
All I do know is that it stopped after starting course of Pred at a high dose 60mg and came back just once in all that time. Has anyone experienced anything similar?
