The Eyes Have It

One of the ways my husband can tell I'm crashing, often before I know myself, is by looking at my eyes.  I start losing my ability to track properly.  My eyes start darting around more than usual.  Of course, I also have the other eye symptoms related to ME/CFS/SEID such as dry eyes, blurred vision and the light sensitivity.  They all get worse as my functioning declines.  Due to my annual midwinter crash, I've had blurred vision for about two weeks now with some days it getting so bad that I can't read even magnified text.

Here are two different types of studies that recently made the news; one that is looking at eye problems in ME/CFS/SEID patients in particular and the other on a new type of eye tracking test that I would LOVE to see used on us.

Eye health could help diagnose people with chronic fatigue syndrome

  1. Interesting. I'm blind (with light perception) so this wouldn't work for me, but I can relate to the other eye symptoms. Also, when I'm functioning worse, I do feel as though my eyes are darting more. I've not been diagnosed with ME/CFS/SEID at this point though.
