blurry vision and stabbing pain

Postby chiarimom » Tue Feb 26, 2008 3:52 pm

Our 17 year old (she has CM/SM/PTC/TC repair) has been complaining the last two days about pain in her eyes --- blurry vision. she says that pain is like it is being stabbed.

We went to the pediatric eye physician and he said that the optic nerve is not swollen and there was really nothing else noticable on the exam.

Has anyone experienced this with their children or with themselves?

Hi Faith,
Holly has had this symptom with swollen optic nerves but she's also had it with a sinus infection. Any chance she has anything going on with the sinuses?
