Does any one know a good opthalmologist who is also good with Lyme disease and co-infections?

Thanks in advance.

'Odd eye movements' could be NYSTAGMUS, very common with lyme. Magnesium can help. (The inner ear can cause the eyes to spasm if irritated, too, especially when toxic load is increased).

maybe your regular eye doctor could help in some ways especially to take a look at the inside back of your eyes and just be sure all is okay.

As you sort all this out, this holistic doctor's site and his book are excellent:

Book & website: THE EYE CARE REVOLUTION - by Robert Abel, Jr. M.D. (Ophthalmologist)

Though not at all about lyme, this is one of the best reference resources on my bookshelf that has wonderful chapters, many graciously available through their website.
