Thank you for getting back to me. I hope your spirits are staying high and you have more good days then bad. I still find this site a place to find courage to fight and move on. Yes it is my sister who has PD. It is sad to see how fast it can change one life. You have to stay in tune to care for your body . She needs to put eye drops in daily and to stay on top of this. Very Few eye doctors work with PD of the eyes. Walking every day I feel is also very, very important. We are still trying to find a team of doctors and therapist. Medication is not working all that well. They say some people do not always respond to it. She see a doctor every 4 months which I think is long time in between visits. Yet I read some post here and I get sad and frightened. I wish all the best and to keep fighting and touch out to each other. If you can help out on how to get a team of doctors this would be great. All feed back is welcome. Thanks always

There are options out there that may help. One of the last options is surgical intervention, but gental eyelid massage, warm compresses, keep hydrated, be in a room with a but more humidity, blinking. Lubricants/drops especially made for the eyes. Omega 3 essential pils found in flaxseed (this is the treatment my husband was put on) dosing was suggested by his primary care physician)
The opthamogist may introduce a antibiotic treatment. I wish you the best.

Hi@ Sad, I have more or less the same vision problems as your sister. I had both my eyes lenses replaced because of cataracts. A few weeks after the surgery my left eye had blurry vision and the eye surgeon advised me to undergo another procedure on the blurry eye which was much quicker than the original surgery and it did correct the blurriness of my left eye. I also developed blurriness of my right eye recently, and I had to go for another Laser procedure on my right eye. Yes, PD is a difficult progressive neurological disease and there are no cures at this time. I hope that you and your sister could find a good treatment & support team. God Bless.
