Surgery with your eye muscles bilaterally to heal double vision from multiple sclerosis MS

Looking at Life Straight-on

I recently had surgery on my eyes for double vision which I trace back to probably being caused by MS. Visual symptoms were the first thing I noticed in my late twenties which I think was a precursor to being diagnosed with primary progressive multiple sclerosis at age 36.

Right after the surgery, the double vision changed. Over the course of three weeks, it merged into unitary singular vision. They do not operate on the eyes themselves. They operate on the small muscles controlling those movements. They ” tighten the cables” leading to your eyes if you will. Anyway, you are put under anesthesia and released the same day so it is outpatient surgery.

I have excessive skin on my eyelids which I think contributed to the double vision (if you put pressure on the outside of your eye with a finger, it distorts your vision which is a similar effect). Surgery can remove the excessive skin safely, so I think I will do it. Anyway, for 2019, “the eyes (ayes) have it.”

The pain of a MS dysphonia flareup

Actress Selma Blair describes the many years it took for her multiple sclerosis to be diagnosed in this interview:

She needs prednisolone infusions for the flare up. If I were her, I would use the once every six months infusion of Ocrevus. In any case, she should consult with her doctors regarding either of these possibilities as each case has its own unique features. She could avoid reinventing the wheel by reading my book “Multiple Sclerosis Mission Remission: Healing MS Against All Odds” which is available on amazon and is described at http://www.msmissionremission.com
