Hi @lpoollou2 and welcome.

I’ve not heard of that manifestation of Optic Neuritis (ON). Is this a new symptom for you or is it something you live with?

I found this visualisation of the Pulfrich Effect :-

Is this similar? I’m just wondering whether other MSers have experienced this, but it’s just been referred to as ON.

Hi

It’s a new symptom. I’ve had ON before but this time was different, I went to the relapse clinic and he said it’s pulfrich. It’s similar to ON but gets better when I sit still but gets worse when I’m moving or looking at moving things.

Thanks for your response.

@lpoollou2 , it’s impressive that your MS Clinic is aware of this manifestation of ON.

Have you been offered a course of Steroids to address this?

I’m under the Walton Centre, they are really good. No there was a reason why they decided they wouldn’t help. They think coloured lenses will help x

@lpoollou2 , it’s good that you have confidence in your medical team, you can feel comfortable accepting their advice.

I assume you have been further referred regarding the coloured lenses?

Yeah they are good. I’m going for an evoked potential test next month. They advised me to go to the opticians, I’ve ordered some glasses which will be another 2 weeks. Apparently they either really help or do nothing. Hence why I was interested if anyone had found they helped them x
