... Hi Loneman
She did not mention that I had any misalignment. I should have asked her directly if there was.
The only thing was that my right eye was "exciteable" during the cover test but I don't know if that plays any role in the problem. I will ask when I go back on the 29th. She also mentioned that my head naturally tilts to the left which might mean that I am trying... (32 replies)
... with prizm glasses. The issue for me though is while covering one eye does fix vibration, it doesn't fix my unsteadiness, unless of course more time with stable vision is needed for that to kick in. ... (32 replies)

... It sounds like you are going through exactly the same thing as me. I have also looked into vitamin deficiency too but did not take any supplements.
It is also funny you mention drinking carrot juice! I tried that for about 2 months but to no avail. I actually ended up enjoying it though!
Can you describe how you do the eye exercises you mention below? Did the... (32 replies)
... Yup. I'm going to twin track this. Go down the medical road probably more to rule out everything than observe anything obvious enough to present to specialists. The other road is holistic. I had two bouts of iritis in 20 years. It's an inflammatory condition of mostly unknown causes that requires steroid tapering. Almost every disease condition has an inflammatory... (32 replies)
... Hi Aero
All serious stuff ruled out:
Tumours and MS have been ruled out via MRI.
Seizures all but ruled out via EEG
Retina and Optic Nerve problem and all other eye problems ruled out via every known eye testing by several MD Opthalologists and Optomoterists. (32 replies)
... Hi, Maximo
I ruled out migraines since the effect lasts all day (or until the light dims at the end of the day and the shimmering isn't apparent). Before an MRI my opthamologist wants me to take motility tests to check for a "subtle hyperphoria", but I expect that's only one of scores of tests you've already taken. In the 6 weeks I've had this there's been no progression... (32 replies)
... Hi there,
I have had it for about 18 months now.
It has not gotten any worse.
Everyone seems stumped at to what this might be. All tests are normal in the brain and the eyes. Believe me I have seen many 'experts'.
If you are suffering from the same thing as me and Loneman are, the MRI will come back normal. (32 replies)
... Hi, Maximo
Just came across your thread with Loneman.
Apart from the dizziness your symptoms fit me to a "T", including the shelves in stores. I see flickering or shimmering within shadow when patterned against white or high contrast areas for 4 weeks now. Most noticeable against horizontal edges like shelves, venetian blinds, books stacked etc. Even rows keys of keys... (32 replies)
... Hi Loneman
It's great to hear from you. I am sorry Prisms didn't work out for you. I thought they wouldn't becuase it sounds like we are both experiencing the same condition and they didnt work for me either;).
I think I might have mentioned in a previous post that I was refered to an Optomoterist R&D department at a University. Well I had visited with them a couple of... (32 replies)
... Hi maximo123, so i had my appointment with the michigan doctor and unfortunately prizm glasses didnt help me although she did say i have verical heterophoria. the issue with me though is that all my problems usually surface after using a computer all day (which is what i do at work) so we did do a few test over 2 days and she gave me a prescription for just regular plus...

... Hey, sorry haven't logged in here in a while. I'm going to see that Michigan doctor next month. Will let you know how it goes right away. I also did have the same exact test (laser dots) you're talking about a while back and also did have some slight abnormalities, but from what I read you have to be very focused during that test. I remember that towards the end it was just... (32 replies)
... Hey there,
I had this chromagen testing thing last week but with no good results. I even went to the store to test the lenses out but still no real effect. I think that they are used for people with dyslexia. In retrospect, the testing was not really relevant to my issue.
I also had something called an ENG where I had to sit down and follow a green laser... (32 replies)
... Thanks mate!
I just remembered one other thing that the Neuro mentioned and that was the fact that I constantly tilt my head to the left, but she did not really go any further than that.
I think that when I go back on the 29th I will really try to press them more.
Who knows, maybe this Chromagen lens thing will work. (32 replies)
... I sometimes walk around the supermarket with one eye closed lol!
Whats wierd is that I can look at a wall of white text on black background on my computer screen and I can see it.
If I just change the exact same text around to black text on a white background it is completely resolved.
It seems that the same oriental rug is ok under slightly darker conditions but I... (32 replies)
... But did they actually find any misalignment between your eyes before trying the prisms? (32 replies)
... I just got back from the Neuro Optomoterists. They did loads of tests on me for an hour and a half. An Internist was also involved too who was very enthusiastic. They tested me for prisms but they just made me feel sick.
One reassuring thing is that the Neuro had heard of this thing before and had some experience of it. She said that I should go back for Chromagen lens... (32 replies)
