Optic Neuritis And Balance

Optic Neuritis And Balance

I have problems with optic neuritis and I have noticed my balance is much worse when I am having severe pain in my eye. Does anyone else have this problem or notice any difference in walking and balance

I know the occupational therapist ays much of my balance issues are due to the optic neuritis in my left eyes. She has me doing some eye exercises to strengthen my eye muscles. She believes this will help some with balance.

I went to eye doctor for script. Once they looked into my eyes, no script. They saw something and I had to have laser surgery on both eyes. I advised any discomfort, pain or just different, GO to the doctor. I would never know if I didn't go. Three years I haven't seen an eye doctor. So now my record stands at 3 yrs old 1 eye, 9 years 1 eye and 55 both eyes.

LOL.
I have the same eye trouble and have numerous falls. Just had one yesterday. I'm sure vision and balance are closely aligned.
