New - Blind and Deaf

My brother was diagnosed with Hughes syndrome 6 months ago. He has lost his hearing and all of his sight in his right eye and very little sight left in his left.

He recently had two ops - Cochlear implants. and a tube put behind his eye because of the pressure behind his eye and severe pain.

Has anyone else gone through this ? If so can you give me any advise as we are worried he will go totally blind.

  • Hello, this all sounds very stressful and upsetting, I can't personally advise, but I am sure that others on here will do, many have had problems with eyes and also neurological features - hang on in there as people will come on and give you some support., and some will have had similar experiences.

  • My Sis was diagnsed last Summer and has sight and hearing issues as well. It came suddenly after diagnosis and has declined since then. She has days when she can hear better. She sees double at times. I hope you find relief for your brother, if you do, please share. Many heartfelt prayers. Lene'
