I had a mini-stroke per my opthalmologist around the week of March 14th. Not sure because I have had flashes in the past, not too worried. He gave me a shot right into eye and said 2 more over next 2 months. Grey dot and red/wjite/yellow blobs makes it difficult to read anything on TV or computer. Op doc says blood vessel ruptured and hemorrhaged in right eye. He says if I don't lose 1/3 of my body weight the left eye is in danger. 3 days after first shot eye is no better, maybe a bit worse. When I go outside on sunny days the eye seems ok, can't see big grey dot.

The CK doctors say to proceed with the CK operation over 3 days in late April. May as well be deaf as well as blind? They say NO WAY is the AN 1.6x1.8x1.6 responsible for the eye issue, the mini-stroke did that. I'd appreciate any info anyone might have? TY

Seems unlikely. Could be related more to blood pressure than the AN.
20 x19x14mm Cystic AN diagnosed Feb 2019. CK.
Mri 2019 shrinking: 18x17x13 mm.
Mri 2020 - no cystic components visible now. Slight shrinking, stable.
MRI 2021 stable no change
MRI 2022 stable no change.
MRI 2023 Further reduction 12x12x10mm!! Hearing 85% balance seems ok.
