    He is having very disruptive visual anomalies, but so far no changes to optic nerve, peripheral vision still all there, etc.

    Different people have pressure problems in different parts of their brain -- pressure that deforms the pituitary and damages the optic nerve, pressure somewhere near one or both parietal lobes (iirc), and one young man whose dad is an avid IH researcher has a gradient of pressures that affect his prefrontal cortex. Mysteries within mysteries.

      care of yourself as well and your co-worker.  I keep meeting people who are having problems with excess fluid.  And your right, the damage caused by the fluid depends on where it is putting excess pressure in or on the brain.  I'm glad to hear that your co-worker's vision is still intact.  I know I lost my depth perception for a while.  When I had my eyes examined with those pictures of the colored dots, I could not read or see what the numbers were that were suppose to stand out.  And I used to drive one of my co-workers nuts when I drove us to work every morning because my depth perception was so bad I couldn't tell how close I was to other cars as I drove down the narrows streets in Chicago.  LOL, I think she sometimes thought taking the CTA was a little easier on her heart than riding with me.
