Ask an Eye M.D. Answer Archive

Please read our important medical disclaimer.

I have a nerve condition (Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy / Complex Regional Pain Syndrome) and have been dealing with blurry vision, double vision, floaters and halos. Could this be something from the nerve condition or something else?

The symptoms of RSD are variable. There are reports of dryness, trouble focusing, blurring and other eye symptoms in patients with RSD. I don’t think anyone has demonstrated a cause and effect relationship between RSD and any eye symptom. However, you should see an Eye M.D. for a full eye exam to be sure that you do not have a treatable intrinsic eye problem causing your symptoms.
