Eyes shaking wobbling

When looking at objects, it gets worse with the distance, my vision is unstable like I cannot fix it on a point? Like a home video camera bobbing about. My depth perception also seems off, reduced.

I also have hazy (visual snow) and colours seem darker/dimmer than they used to. I also have tinnitus.

I was taking BENZOS/antidepressants about 4 months ago, but this problem still exists. It could also have been potentially due to CO poisoning.

I had an MRI and it said asymmetric optic nerve sheath, although the doctor confirms this is fine.

What coykd be causing this? Is there any hope it will go away?

Please help

      Did you have any other neurological issues? I'm absolutely debilitated by this... I also developed a little bit of hearing loss and tinnitus...and weakness in my limbs. Life is not pleasant..

      I had/have a squint and intractable diplopia which is a brain issue so much for the eyes is done by the brain that it's really complex. Have you been to see a neuro-ophthalmologist?

    I can not guarantee this as I am not a doctor however I can say that it is likely to work doing alot of eye excersizes and resting your eyes every couple of hours with closed eyes for 10-20 minutes... relax and destress.  (may help the vision get slightly better.)

      I visited a physio for vestibular assessment and she claimed it was neck problems but I'm sceptical because it just suddenly came on??? Cervical occular reflex?

      I've been under intense stress and anxiety for a long time, was also coming off medication and smoking heavily at the time due to the stress sad

      I just wish it would stop..

      It's like a video camera without image stabilisation, I'm totally debilitated by it.

      Jennifer what are your exact symptoms? How did it start with you? Haven't seen a neuro opthologist since in UK, due to see a neurologist in a couple of weeks..

      My exact symptoms are visual snow mainly in my left eye with flashing lights and sometimes my eyes shake so much I can feel them doing it other times they do it without me noticing but others have seen it. Mine maybe a bit different as I also have a squint after 3 failed operations to correct it I am left with constant double vision

      Do you experience the image moving about wobbling? I also have quite bad visual snow on everything since this began...

      What was the brain issue?

      I also have heaviness in my limbs suggesting it could be a brain issue too.

      Thanks for your response

      Yes when my eyes shake whatever i am looking at shakes too, it is most uncomfortable. Sometimes it only last short periods other times it lasts longer. 

      My brain and eyes have stopped working together hence the double vision I cannot look with both my eyes and see one image it is always two of the same thing, very annoying and hard to live with. The shaking and visual maybe connected to that in my case but I really don't know. 

      Have you booked to see anyone as yet?

      I've a neurologist appointment in 10 days however don't hold much hope...

      I really am stumped it's just ridiculous, 5 months now and I haven't seen a still image it's driving me nuts sad

      I heard benzos and all these nasty drugs can effect gaba receptors which control muscle movement however I was onlyon them for 3 months and that was 6 months ago, how can this possibly be withdrawal?

      I'm dead basically

    I am no doctor, but this sounds like a retinal problem, suggests that you visit a retinl specialist as soon as possible
