Visual Defects was created by Zippy

After acromegaly diagnosis, surgery, medications (lanreotide, dostinex) I underwent 5 weeks of fractionated stereotactic radiotherapy. I am now on daily injections of Somavert. My ophthalmologist now tells me that I have NEW changes in my visual field tests that are secondary to the pituitary tumor. Has anyone else experienced vision problems after IGF1 levels are controlled ?
