      I had decompression surgery 5 weeks ago on r eye 4 weeks ago on l eye double vision which I was always a possibility but my question is I was on 129 mg prednisone and have tapered to 10 mg in 5 weeks not sure it has anything to do with this but my right eye I see everything brighter than out of my left eye almost so much that it is hard to see clearly. has this happened to anyone else after surgery thanks.

        I have not had decompression surgery, only lid surgery but I also have noted that the vision in my right eye is much brighter than my left. I especially notice it when my bedroom is dark and I look at a light on in the hall with each eye separately. Looking only out of my left eye, with my right eye covered or closed the light in the hallway looks sort of brownish-like looking at a sepia toned portrait. Looking with my left eye closed or covered so only looking out of my right eye, the light is much brighter without the brown tones. I also have noted this while looking through my binoculars while birdwatching. I have to close my left eye because my vision in the left eye is decreased by what appears to be a veil over my eye–very annoying. I have reported this to my opthalmologist but she doesn’t know what is causing it. I did have a CT Scan of my orbits in January which did not show any problem with my optic nerve. I would really like to know what is causing it.

          I experience the same thing. I have not had any surgery, but have been on prednisone, and have had 10 orbital radiation treatments a month ago(they haven’t helped yet). I see colors more vividly with my right eye than with my left.

            No specific experience as you. But, my eyes have been very light-sensitive since diagnosed with Graves. I wear transition lenses in my Rx glasses and sun shades that clip on anytime I am outside or around bright lights (i.e., flourescent or directly near me). And, I have been dealing with this since 2002. Joy in NoGA mtns.

              My neuro-opthal. told me to watch the color red – like on a Coke can. If it changed color, I should get in to see him ASAP. That is one of the signs of pressure on optic nerve. Remember that our disease is always there – we are in remission more at some times than others. Joy in NoGA mtns.
