Hi im having vision problems bit im not convinced they are from low b12.. my levels are 133 i had my first loading jab fri after noon...

My vision symptoms are i see alot of purple and blue spots and flashes in peripheral vision.. lile when you have your pic took or stare towards the sun.. that kind of light thats burned into your vision.

I also get alot of afterimages.. i could look at the tele and look away and get the after image? Same goes for alot of other things. Also have halos around lights.. rainbow ones sometimes and also ghosting sometimes. Dry eyes also. Can anyone relate? Albeit, these symptoms did start when my other symptoms started which all tie into low b12.. my symptoms do mainly tend to be neuro symptoms. Please let me know im not going mad! Thanks.

    Hiya. I get blurred vision. It comes & goes & sometimes get a bright blue light in my peripheral vision. I'm almost 2 weeks away from getting my injection & my blurryness is happening more regularly.

    I am 2 weeks of my b12 and my vision for a little blurry. I have to wear my glasses most of the time rather than just for reading.

    I also tend to get aura migraines just before my injections are due. It took me several months to figure the pattern out!

    I get blurry vision and flashes in peripheral vision when going from light to dark. Eye specialists believe it to be age related and reduction in vitreous fluid behind the eye but I think it's the PA as it comes and goes.
