Brief Answer: My reply is below. Detailed Answer: Hi mr XXXXXXX Thank you for getting back. Of course, I do remember you. In my opinion, it is very unlikely to be CMV retinitis. In CMV retinitis, there would be drop in vision all the time, and visual symptoms would worsen over time. Also, it occurs almost always in the setting of advanced AIDS (HIV infection). Your symptoms could be vascular headache (similar to migraine), where light sensitivity and blurred vision may occur. It is good to note that your MRI is normal. If visual symptoms persist, you may get an eye check up done. I hope my answer helps. Please get back if you have any follow up queries or if you require any additional information.
