Papilledema

Has anyone here been found to have an enlarged optic nerve? And on one side only? From my googling I see that one sided is very rare and enlarged optic nerves in general aren’t a very common symptom of chiari. I was told I may have early glaucoma and was to be retested for this (I never did that, though, I know I should have but that visual field test was just too stressful for me).

I’m sorry to hear that you’re having issues with your vision. I’ve had the visual field test quite a few times. I find that it’s nearly impossible to stay awake while doing it.

Your vision is really important. Whether it’s related to the Chiari malformation or not, I would encourage you to follow up with this.
