Restricted movement of eyeball
An_256328 posted:
What might cause blurry vision, different sized pupils and restricted vertical movement of one eye? Could this be related to Lyme Disease several years previously?
Alan M Kozarsky, MD responded:
Any one of the three issues you mention is sufficient reason to see an ophthalmologist.

Yes, these problems can be related to Lyme disease but there are other conditions requiring prompt diagnosis that can also cause issues with vision, pupils and eye movement.

My concern is that there may be a neurological condition underlying this which demands diagnosis and treatment.
naomistevenett replied to Alan M Kozarsky, MD's response:
Thank you. Two ophthalmologists have expressed the exact same opinion as you. However, the neurologist I consulted thereafter simply said there was nothing wrong with me, since he could find no evidence of MS on MRI. That is why I began to wonder if it could be related to a prior diagnosis of LD.
