Changes in eye vision of any kind are critical to report as they may well be related to shunt failure/malfunction. Consult with your doctor, neurosurgeon or ophthalmologist, immediately if you ever experience any kind of change in your vision: blurriness, gray outs, double vision, etc.
Increased intracranial pressure can cause swelling of the optic nerve – a condition known as Papilledema. Papilledema can cause vision loss from mild deterioration to total blindness. Ask your doctor for a referral to an ophthalmologist.
