    Has anyone permanently loss vision in one eye or both eyes from having MS? My daughter is experiencing this now and it’s been 9 months already.

    khali20, Depending upon how strong the attack was, or how severe, it will take time, for me it was years before I was comfortable and my vision improved gradually.  The trauma the body has gone through with an exacerbation is not always obvious, it is mostly inside for some of us, so we look SOOOO good, but the body has been put through the ringer and it takes time for the brain to sort through all the data and find the best route to repair all the connections. And, how long it takes for her to adapt will also have a bearing, loss even temporary and we seldom think it is temporary, is hard to accept for all humans, living with ms is learning how to be calm through a crisis a minute, always something new and always something different, and if you give in to feeling sorry for her it will be much worse, show her your support and trust that she will live up to the challenge(s), give her the opportunity to show her strengths and she will overcome those things she thinks are her weaknesses.
