Those that know me know that I had radiation to my sinus's and neck. Since Ive had issues with my vision. Blurred vision, pain when I move my eyes around, eyes always felts strained. Finally decided to get some relief, when I couldnt even look up without it causing discomfort. Nothing life threating, but annoying.
My doc at MDAnderson told me to go see an opthamalogist, after several test, she said that the radiation had cuased some damage, but mostly it caused severe dry eye, she put me on Restasis about 3 months ago. I went back on Friday, and she said there was very little or no change from the Restasis, so she decided it was time to "plug my tear ducts". Apparently this helps with chronic dry eye (one would think it would make it more dry, but what do I know). So I am on day 3 of Restasis and the plugs, so we shall see how the next week or two go. She said its a gradual improvement, but it will help. Fingers crossed..
Anyone else have this done? If so what was your outcome?
