My neurologist has sent me to see an opthamalogist to confirm his suspicion that I have pseudotumor cerebri. He seems fairly certain based on my symptoms, MRI, and retinal scan. One of my symptoms is double vision. Have any of you lost your ability to drive/been told you no longer can drive by the doctor based on the double vision or other vision issues? I am quite worried about this now that my appointment is less than 2 weeks away.

      I’ve got double vision. It’s caused by pressure build up on the sixth cranial nerve. It’s called sixth cranial nerve palsy. I did not give up driving because of this. I did give of driving because of petit mal seizures. Pressure build up on the cranial nerve is not necessary permanent. Lowering your overall brain pressure with medications or surgery will alleviate cranial nerve pressure as well thus resolving your double vision. Best of wishes.

      I have lost all peripheral vision in my right eye and even after treatment it has never come back. But I have luckily not had double vision or been told I cannot drive.
