18 months ago I started getting blurry central vision in both eyes at the same time - it wasn't there all the time but when it was happening I found it very hard to do fine work.
I saw an ophthalmologist who did an OCT and retinal exam and found nothing. He suggested it was neurological so I had an MRI of my brain and orbits but nothing was found to explain the problem.
In the last three months I found that the problem had become permanent in my right eye - I could now see a faint central ring that pulsated with my heartbeat on that side. I went back to the ophthalmologist and he diagnosed a stage one macular hole. He didn't think the previous loss of vision was connected to this. He has advised me to wait and see if it gets worse but I am considering doing the surgery anyway - maybe trying the new drug Jetreap first which is very expensive but which is said to help a small number of patients.
Has anybody had a similar experience - with the visual loss coming and going? Anybody tried or considered trying Jetreap?
