Is Lack Of Depth Perception A Symptom Of MSA? (For Those That Don’t Know, MSA Is A Kind Of Atypical PD)

Is Lack Of Depth Perception A Symptom Of MSA? (For Those That Don’t Know, MSA Is A Kind Of Atypical PD)

My optometrist changed my glasses about three years ago for the depth perception issue. This year I got a new prescription since with PD our vision is more subject to changes. He said my changes were very slight but warranted a new prescription. Of course you will notice when you need an adjustment. I'm glad I got it checked.

I cannot imagine what Atypical PD would be like. I think PD is all Atypical. Nothing i have experienced with my symptoms is common. When I try and tell my family what My symptoms are they look at me like I'm crazy, and I know they don't believe me. Hell, I can't blame them, I can hardly talk lately, I feel my brain has shut off. They tell me that they have had that or I've done that. Friends do this too even my aide does it. They try to normalize it. So I stay home and don't reach out to people. I isolate and love it well some days I feel lonely, but I have my cats. You know I've had such a great life and accomplished some of my goals. I am at peace within myself. I've become comfortable in my own skin which is a major miracle of God. Thank you Jesus! I have to trust God. 🙂 Love and Prayers Rosie

My glasses seem to change almost every year to a year and half now. I can always notice the change in the prescription

Hi Sulyn, I have double vision and eyes that do not converg. The diagnosis came , I believe post Parkinson's. By the way, my dear, cataract surgery and resurgery, didn't make a difference. I love my glasses though.
Love,Jeri

Hey y’all! This is worth saying again….. Our loved ones and family, actually anybody outside of having Parkinsons, float on the surface of the water and see only the tip of the PD iceberg. We Parkie’s, however, live below the surface water in real time, in full view, in and around, inside and with the biggest part of the PD ‘berg.
We describe it to them seven different ways from Sunday, waxing eloquent or as simplistic as we want, but to no avail, cause if you don’t have PD you don’t get it.
