I had always had poor vision and wore thick glasses, my vision was 20/400 in each eye. Initially after plaque I gradually lost more vision that couldn'tbe corrected with glasses. My vision became such I only saw light and dark, and shadows. This lasted about 3 years. Then I was able to have the radiation induced cataract removed, a prosthetic lens inserted, and nowmy vision is 20/70, the best it's ever been in my life. Some people don't lose vision, some do. It epends on the location of the tumor and the amount of radiation damage. Good luck to your husband with his MRI.
