The disease has effected my vision worse than the abx. Ive had floaters, blurred vision, pupil abnormalities etc since it began. Im sorry to say people have gone blind from the disease.My opinion is that the disease aggressively attacks the central nervous system. Low dose antibiotics will send the bacteria into hiding until you can destruct it long term.
Ocular manifestations of Lyme disease may occur at any stage but are more common in the last
two stages. The most common ocular finding in stage I is conjunctivitis.
During the second and third stages, ocular involvement includes anterior, intermediate
, and posterior uveitis, endophthalmitis, keratitis (stromal opacities, punctuate superficial keratitis or peripheral ulcerative keratitis), and conjunctivitis. Neuroophthalmic features can also occur, including involvement of third, sixth, and seventh cranial nerves (Bell's palsy, most common),
optic nerve (optic neuritis and perineuritis, papilledema, ischemic optic neuropathy, optic nerve atrophy). Other possible ocular involvement includes retinal hemorrhages, exudative retinal detachments, cystoid ma
cular edema, blepharitis, scleritis and episcleritis.
The most commonly reported ocular syndromes in stage II are conjunctivitis and uveitis.
Bilateral interstitial keratitis has been described as a characteristic feature in the late stage of Lyme
