Just got back from my last VRT for the time being. I mentioned my annoying symptom of start/stop type vision when watching movement - particularly on TVs. She told me that isn’t something she thinks VRT can help with and go and see a neuro ophthalmologist. Then gave me a contact.
Got me thinking, and slightly worried. So as I do… googled this to see what I can come up with so to discuss with neuro when next we meet. Akinetopsia! This fits me exactly. It’s not as severe as others but describes what I see really well.
When watching panning shots or movement, it stops and starts as if I’m seeing every frame. It doesn’t happen in real 3D life - or maybe not as noticeable.
Now, what could cause that? Brain lesions! And I have many from ‘migraine’ apparently. I wonder whether I have a brain lesion in the V5 portion of the brain.
Just look at how quickly I jump to conclusions and self diagnose, BUT this is something worth investigating. And if it is lesions, then I have a big case to continue on long term preventative medication I think!
