Eyes and sight
How does MS affect the eyes?
The most common problems with vision in MS are optic neuritis and eye movement problems
Optic neuritis is often an early symptom of multiple sclerosis, although you might have problems with your eyes at any time. Some people also have eye movement problems like twitching.
Most people make a good recovery from their eye problem, and if it doesn’t get better, there are places and people to turn to for support and practical help.
