After a mixture of NHS and private appointments I am now nearer to a diagnosis of what is causing the pain and discomfort in my eye. Having an MRI to rule out neurological but have also been told I have a squint; apparently not only children get them but older people too. If it is this then I will have to have some kind of surgery and will have to be referred on to yet another expert.
It certainly makes sense of why I get a headache, eye pain and discomfort particularly if I try to use my ipad or kindle for too long, or even watching TV. I also realise how unconsciously I adjust to things without even realising. I gave up on books months ago but thought it was because of cognitive rather than eyes but in recent weeks I've been relying more and more on audio books. And never seem to be on the mood for doing my tapestry either.
I don 't know if it is a feature of Hughes but the older I get some part of my body lets me down. I am only 61 but my 92yr old dad has more get and go than me!
