Looking for an opthamologist that is Lyme literate (for my son). Visual symptoms seem to be our biggest problem right now. Sensitive to bright light/sunlight, floaters, foggy/snowy vision, red/blue dots, says he feels like there is a lens or film in front of his eyes all the time. There is no pain, redness or infection. Never had eye issues prior to infection. Have been treating with antibiotics and herbals since May 2017. Thanks

FYI - I went to a neuro-ophthalmogist who did all their tests, I tested normal even though he had to anesthetize my eyes for me to be able to look at light. He wanted to give me steroid drops which I knew was bad for Lyme patients.

Then my chiropractor suggested I try drinking mangosteen juice, an anti-inflammatory juice. I did, and all eye symptoms went away in 24 hours! They included floaters, light sensitivity, eye muscle pain, and blurring vision.

I drink the Mango-Xan version as that's the most tart. In health food stores and online. We're all different so we need to find what works for us.

I don't know of a LL opthalmologist in that part of the country.\

But I have had a whole lot of eye problems for decades, I believe many of them from Lyme & company. When I went to a very well respected eye institute with a major Ivy League university, a very smart MD, Phd took photos of my retinas that were filled with black sqiggly lines that he said were from Lyme disease

He thought it was old damage that wasn't affecting my eye sight functionally. I disagree with the last part. But later a big deal retinologist from London, who was in his 80's, came to teach and looked at my eyes and photos with my doctor. To my great shock, both of them said that they had never seen anything like this!!

"like a film" over his eyes---make sure that he doesn't have cataracts! Yes, even kids can have them. Hope not, however.

This thread can be both in "Seeking a Doctor" and "Medical," IMO.
