Hiya, I was looking through some of the recent posts on here a few days ago and read somewhere that regular eye tests were recommended if using pred and nebs... So I thought to meself Id best pop along being that i havent had a sight test in about 17 years!!!!!
Anyway during the appointment the optician told me I should be having annual tests as steroids can do something to the lens and cause a higher risk of glaucoma and cataracts.... Dunno if anyone else has heard that & obviously I dont want to scare anyone, but I had no idea!!!! He found some sort of problem with my eyes anyway and is helping me sort it, but I had no symptoms and so no concerns I might need a sight test
So thanks to the many people who contribute on the forum.. its great to share ideas and tricks as well as trauma and worries... my eye problem would have gone undetected until who knows when had it not been for you guys xx
