confused   When I went for the ver test, my vision in my left eye kept going completely black on me, my right eye didn't do this, also my left eye is the one I've been having blurry vision.  I finished the round of steroids, and am not fatigued like I was.  I go back to neuro in about 3 weeks.  Thanks for your help.

here is a website that describes what the VER is (it's also called a VEP):

http://www.mult-sclerosis.org/VisuallyEvokedResponse.html

It seems to me -- but I am NOT a doctor, and NOT familiar with this test -- that if there was a difference in perception between your eyes, it would be noted by your doctor. He'd have to explain to you what the difference is, and what relevance it might have to a diagnosis.

The test is designed just for that reason --to discern if there is a difference in transmission of signals between the brain and each eye...but I don't know if what you experienced demonstrates that or not.

 


...I am not a doctor, nor health professional, and don't pretend to be one, here.....
