Many people with MS are affected by visual symptoms. The main causes of impaired vision are conditions such as Optic Neuritis, Nystagmus and Diplopia, all of which affect the vision in different ways. A symptom unique to those affected by Optic Neuritis is known as Uhthoff’s Sign, whereby the vision is temporarily affected when the person’s body core temperature is elevated. MS-UK is putting information together for people with MS and are looking for feedback from anyone with first-hand experience. MS-UK say ‘If you have, or still do, experience visual impairment due to your MS, we would like your feedback by answering the questions here: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/WQHT7JX.
Your input is valuable as we will share it with others who may benefit from your suggestions. We may use quotes from your feedback in our future Choices booklets, but these will be entirely anonymous.’
