One early visual issue I had, even as a child, was that I often would fail to see something that is right in front of me. This is especially noticeable if the object or my own body (or both) is in motion. So I sometimes will walk into things, almost have been run over by cars when crossing streets, etc., all because my brain somehow does not see the object. This issue is so intermittant and there are no warning signs - it happens out of the blue and then I can go for weeks and months before the next occurrance. My eyesight was 20/20 or better as a child when this was first observed, and usually I pass all the eye tests with no difficulty. None of the eye doctors I've ever been to have been able to find anything abnormal other than dry eye, and more recently, astigmatism. I also have been slowly becoming more and more nearsighted, and starting in 2002, I began to have an extreme sensitivity to bright light (especially sunlight). Is this all due to Lyme? I don't know. I know the failing to see objects (most likely a visual processing issue), dry eye, light sensitivity, and the astigmatism can be caused by Lyme, but not sure about the nearsightedness.
