Eye Floaters and CMV

Apr 8, 2005

Dr. Young,

I was infected in Jan. but have eye problems like floaters and blurred vision, dry eyes. My cd4 is low but I was wondering if these problems go away when treatment is started?

Response from Dr. Young

Thanks for your post.

If you have a low CD4 count and visual problems, I wouldn't be waiting around to have treatment improve your immune system. The thing to do is to contact your doctor and have a detailed ophthamologic examination. Sometimes floaters and blurry vision can be the sentinal symptoms of serious conditions. BY

Is it the right time to start meds?
