First off, I don't know the physical cause of Marquez eye sight problems, so this might be unrelated, nevertheless I think it's worth asking...
Why is it still acceptable that the visor flies off when a rider is tumbling through the gravel bed? There have been multiple bruises and cuts to riders eyebrows, so it would one of those nice, incremental, safety improvements to mandate better visor fixtures.

For Marquez to still have double vision issues this long after a big bang on the head is quite worrying. Good luck to him and hope that this is just a glitch for the winter season.

@Just bored. The reason for the visor to get ripped off rather than stay fixed is the fact a visor open is then a huge shovel to get caught up in the event of a crash and then start to twist necks. Arai and Agv had to make their extractor helmet vents on the top of uk helmets (no kitemark otherwise) be stuck on in the mid/late '90s so if they got caught in anything they ripped from the top of the helmet.

I hope he makes a full recovery. What worries me in this however is the fact that he was even allowed on track at Sepang after the accident. Who on earth pronounced him fit

From the sound of this, Marquez's injury is a lot worse than anyone is letting on! To still have double vision after this length of time is very, very worrying and could be something that could put an end to Marquez's racing career! Double vision after any bang on the head is not good, but to still be suffering from it after such a long time sounds seriously bad!!! Dear oh dear!!
