What eye problems are associated with acquired hydrocephalus?

Older children and adults with acquired hydrocephalus experience eye problems as a result of acquired hydrocephalus, but these problems usually disappear after treatment. One of these symptoms is referred to as "sunsetting," in which the eyes are fixed downward. Other symptoms for this condition related to the eyes are papilledema, or a swelling of the optic disk, and blurred vision. Again, these problems should be reversed once you are properly treated for acquired hydrocephalus.
