I am 80 and had cataract surgery in 2013 and had thorough eye examinations at that time and also a few years ago when I did not do well in field vision tests when glaucoma was wrongly suspected . I was always short sighted and wore glasses from the age of 12. Since cataract surgery I have twice had eye tests the last one being on 14th January without any problems being noted apart from slight condensation in the lower corner of the left lens and that the right lens had been slightly scratched when being put in.
I had earlier mentioned to my GP that I had been having headaches since the end of October and he referred me to a headache clinic and a neurologist who I am still waiting for appointments with. I also mentioned the headaches to the optician who found no reason for them.
I then had an appointment with the blood pressure clinic and again mentioned the headaches. The consultant there examined my eyes but did not mention a problem. I had a letter from him today to say that he had arranged for a CT head scan saying that cranial nerves II-XII were all intact but a two beat nystagmus noted in the left eye on lateral gaze.
If his diagnosis is correct this seems to be a condition with many causes.
I’m sure that this Forum will have others with this condition.
