    Default Weird MS eye problems: Pulfrich phenomenon

    I was tuned in on an MS Society Webinar on MS eye problems, and the Pulfrich phenomenon was mentioned. I looked it up since I hadn't heard of it. It's a weird problem with the eyes that people with MS can have, and here is a list of the kinds of situations you might find happening to you if you have this eye abnormality:

    Never a dull moment if you have MS.

    It seems to be more associated to Optic Neuritis than a stand alone effect.

    I can't say anything about bike riding, badminton or golf but otherwise I have all of these difficulties. I wouldn't want to try getting on a bike.

    That is one of the best sources of information I have gotten! Thank you so much.
    If people click on the link that says "back to the original article" it gives hope and details about fixes.

    My neurologist told me years ago that my MS had caused me to have a depth perception problem. That is one of the significant visual problems I deal with. That is why I always think we are closer to the car in front of us than we really are.
    I always have good distance between me and the car in front!

    Thank you for finding this article and posting it. As I always do with this subject I caution people to be careful about how much and what you tell any doctor as you may not want someone reporting on you.

    There's a .pdf file of the Webinar. I think the Webinar itself will be available in archived form soon.

    https://cdn.mscando.org/files/webina...729#asset:4263

    I'll be checking into the archived version because I wasn't able to stay through the Q&A at the end.

    My support group is meeting today so I sent on the article you posted. It was early enough so that the group will have it even though I am not there. Thanks again.

    Yes, Howie it probably is more likely to happen in people who have optic neuritis, which I had back some years ago a number of times. It cleared up when I started on DMD, which is one reason I do not want to come off of it. That is one thing I can definitely point to that was helped. I was really getting scared because I kept having episode after episode. After being on the first DMD I was on for a little while it cleared up. I am knocking on wood as I type this.

    Optic neuritis often leaves "deficits." I have enlarged blind spots in both eyes as a result of optic neuritis even though I haven't had an actual attack of ON in about 30 years so far as I know. It was one of those things that was a big problem early in the MS "journey" but it became less of a problem over time--except for the deficits.

    I notice people talking about their MS "journey." I don't like to think of it that way myself. It sounds as if it's fun, in the way that travel can be fun. On the other hand it does emphasize the way MS goes on and on instead of being something you get over like the flu.

    There's a way to watch the Webinar now if you scroll down to the bottom of the page here. It lasts over an hour but you can skip around in it of course:
