Vision loss in ARS/early infection
Feb 18, 2009

Is it possible to have visual deficits shortly after ARS (weeks)?

I have noticed blurred vision and floaters.

Is this worrisome and does it mean anything about prognosis?

Response from Dr. Young

It's possible to have a wide array of symptoms during acute retroviral syndrome-- ranging from none to mild (most common) to new onset AIDS complications.

The most important thing to do at anytime when you have concerning symptoms is to notify your doctor and get appropriate medical and laboratory assessment.

Best of luck, BY
