I went to see a LL neuro opthamologist in Lancaster and he diagnosed me with a partic visual prob - part muscular (my Left and Right eyes weren't working together properly), and it turned out part neurological (because this problem was so bad, my left eye was shutting off at times so I wouldn't see double!).
I've never had floaters though.
Anyway, I was referred by him to another Dr whose office provides vision therapy in West Chester PA - I went for several months and it helped tremendously - my vision still gets blurry occasionally if my symptoms really flare, but the particular problem is about 90 - 95% better.
Good luck! Abby

- it's best if you can get a LL therapist as lyme patients do pose a different challenge that someone who is not LL would not understand.
Inner ear/balance training can help with vision and brain - and many other things, too.
Yoga for the Eyes -- at Amazon - and many videos on You Tube.

Yes, some rehab and training techniques may help you manage or cope but if infection is the cause, that must be treated. As well, toxins from infections must be handled. Are you getting the treatment for lyme (and coinfections) that you require?
I really like your conversational tone and how quiet and still the background is. It's so refreshing to watch something that does not hit me over the head.
One suggestion is to put a date on it or rather than say next month, say the month and year. That way, when we watch for details so that we can better answer you, we know how current your last entry is.
You might hold up a card (light in color but not stark white) with a date on it at the beginning and end since You Tube does not seem to post a date of when it was made.
Best I could gather this one is five months past September (last?) which may make it last month - February ?
I do vision and vestibular rehab. I find it very helpful to rewire the brain and recommend it. However most progress has come as the infection has come down. If you aren't in a place of having active infection under control, you aren't going to make a lot of progress.
