It started with poor vision,she ignored it for 2 months,then when we saw an eyes specialist ,he told us vision was poor in both the eyes.and thru her left eye she would see doube,the doctors were doubting or worried about the optic nerve being involved?tests were fine,not significant.her eyesight normal after 15-20 days.then after 2 months she had severe pain and water in her left eyes,would appear as if something hit inside her eye,she could just not open it.we thought it was eye infection.the same happened almost aftet 1 year!so i am not sure what to do?and worried

It can be MS or Auto Immune

// And the only follow should be with an eye specialist?//
But
When there is double vision in only one eye
The Follow Up should be with Eye Specialist
Only after that you need to consult a Neurosurgeon
