question: lower left quadrant visual field loss

Submitted by scootercb on Tue, 12/06/2011 - 9:49pm

My visual fields now show some loss bilaterally in the lower left quadrant (NB: there is already some typical damage in the upper right quadrants).  The opthamologist said that this lower left damage is NOT consistent with glaucoma and suggests some other source of damage to the optic nerve tract in the brain.  Has anyone else experienced this pattern of loss?

Note these conclusions! Also note that Josef FLAMMER, Professor and Head, Department of Ophthalmology, University Hospital Basel (Switzerland), recommends magnesium supplementation (so I am told).

Purpose. To evaluate the effect of oral magnesium therapy on ocular blood flow and visual field perimetry indices in patients with normotensive glaucoma (NTG).
