I feel bad for your daughter, vision loss is something that happened to me (I never posted about
this before because I didn't want to scare people but you brought this up so that's why I am responding). To this day I do not know if my vision loss was caused by lyme 100%. I had no other lyme symptoms at the time and this happened about
15 years prior to my contracting lyme disease which became chronic.
I was left with macular scarring in my left eye which blocks my vision and saw so many eye specialists but there was nothing they could do. The doctors did see spirochetes in my eyes but never said lyme, they thought I had syphilis (a cousin to lyme) which I tested negative for and I was ignorant about
lyme disease back then which is why I didn't pursue it.
It's possible it could be caused by parasites, I don't know.
Please take your daughter to more eye specialists and get as many opinions as you can. It's good that you know about
this now. Below I found a website where you could put in your zip code and find providers:https://noravisionrehab.org/patients-caregivers/about-brain-injuries-vision/lyme-disease-and-vision
If you click on this site it states:
How does Lyme Disease Affect Vision?
In the early stages, visual symptoms can include: blur, visual fatigue, double vision, headaches associated with visual activities, losing place when reading, seeing words appear to double or become double when reading, and more obscure problems often not associated with vision such as difficulty with balance, spatial orientation, memory, comprehension, feeling of being over-whelmed by being in a busy-crowded environment with movement of people and objects, sensitivity to sound, to name several.2
In later stages of the disease, inflammation of the eye may develop. Parts of the eye that may be affected include the uvea, the middle layer inside the eye, the cornea, part of the outer coat of the eye; the iris, the colored circle around the pupil, and the choroid, a layer of blood vessels in the eye. Ocular symptoms can include sensitivity to light and floaters (spots in front of the eyes).3
Research also shows that when the visual process is compromised by tick-borne disease the person will develop compensatory habits in order to attempt to function with their compromised vision. This can put strain on the body that will lead to fatigue, discomfort and compromise of higher visual-perceptual processing associated with memory and cognitive function.

I hope this helps and that your daughter gets better,
