Hi Huggy......there is a thread about eye problems put on here on the 6th June by Wye and i have also put some info on there about my experience. I have had problems most of my life with my eyes and in the 90s developed an overactive Thyroid which resulted in Thyroid eye disease. It was extremely painful for 11 weeks as it was misdiagnosed. The pain was caused by fatty deposits that were pressing on the optic nerve and pushing the eyeball forward, so i ended up with a large looking eye and the other one had lid lag (pretty)!! i have been a regular visitor to the eye hospital since it started in fact i am there tomorrow, as the eyes get very dry and sore and i now use HYLOTEARS on prescription several times a day. It has become worse since the Parky took over! and it also affects the eye muscles. I have double vision and need surgery on the lid that lags , not for cosmetic reasons but just purely to be able to see better.
My consultant is very good and specialises in TED and i will be guided by him, as he says lifting the lid if only a little can make the eyes more dry and sore and that in turn could affect the sight even more, so lots to consider. Parky can affect the eyes and make them dry and gritty, i have tried many types of drops but your doc can prescribe Hylotears and used regularly can really help enormously.
I wish you well Huggy, please let us know how you get on
