I have to get glasses for the first time today. Doing last minute research because the severity of my poor vision changes
I came across this at the link included. There us also a kindle unlimited book (by I think the same author. If you have KU you can borrow it, if not it is 2.99
Ig coveres these issues in more depth
How do I know glasses will help / prescription will stay the same if blurriness levels change?
Doctors and EDS patients must not assume that their symptoms are always due to their EDS and are therefore unactionable. For example, even among the EDS population, the number one cause of fluctuating vision is diabetes.
Blurred vision that comes and goes;
difficulty in accommodation
• Diplopia (double vision) out of one eye, or with both eyes open
• A change in depth perception, especially when looking to the side that may be intermittent
• “Photophobia” (light sensitivity) • Complete, or almost complete, loss of vision in one eye that lasts a few minutes; migraine auras, scintillating scotomas
• Visual “snow”
• Dry eyes
• Tunnel vision
•Floaters (EDS patients have more floaters than the general population)
• Flashes of light or a curtain over the vision •
*Vision that is not fully correctable with glasses or soft contact lenses. (Doctors should perform corneal topography on all patients with unexplained blurred vision.)
• Myopia (nearsightedness) that increases quickly •
• Deep eye pain that seems to have no ocular cause (it may be due to venous pressure on the branches of the trigeminal nerve -- the fifth cranial nerve in the cavernous sinus – and can thus exhibit intermittently).
In Ehlers Danlos Syndrome, however, the corneas are often found to be fairly flat, meaning that the near-sightedness is due primarily to elongation of the eye.6
Early symptoms of keratoconus include vision that just doesn’t seem as clear to the patient as it should be – even with use of new glasses or soft contact lenses. It is usually worse in one eye than the other.
