Ocular manifestations in chronic fatigue syndrome
- 9 Downloads
A case-control masked study was performed in 37 patients with chronic fatigue syndrome (GFS) to evaluate ocular signs, symptoms, and functional parameters. A significant association was found between CFS and blurred vision at near, foggy vision, shadowed vision, headaches, and photophobia. Blurred vision, foggy vision, and headaches were associated with abnormal oculomotor function, and shadowed vision and photophobia were associated with tear deficiency. These data suggest that CFS affects the ocular system.
