Woke up one morning with extreme vision loss. Have been diagnosed with NAION. Don't know how or why?
ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
My vision in both eyes has been deteriorating rapidly since I woke up one morning with blurred vision in right eye. I had been very ill for 2 months with extreme headaches and high fever. I have been to Dr's, hospitals and clinics with no answers to why this is all happening. According to all the tests they couldn't find why I was sick originally. I have a current diagnosis of NAION ( Non Arteritic Ischemic Neuropathy ) which affects the optic nerves connecting you eyes to the brain. According to the medical community there is no cure for this disease. I have done some research to see about clinical trials but most have been unsuccessful. I am hopeful there may be some direction in the research on this condition, but as far as I have found I don't find any new information.
