My Sister-in -Law Audrey was diagnosed with PSP in December 2011 But we are sure that she had been miss-diagnosed for at least 6 years when she was being treated for vertigo and other balance problems. During that period she had eye problems which opticians and the hospital eye department. were unable to solve and this resulted in her being unable to read at all, we now know that it was the PSP that was the problem.
Audrey's optician retired and her records were sent to another reccomended by them, Peter Marsen of 188 Church Road, Hove, Sussex BN3 2DJ.
Audrey and I visited Peter yesterday and we were both very impressed because he has experience of PSP and understood all of the problems that Audrey was experiencing. He gained the experience many years ago when his mother unfortunately died from the condition. As an optician he made it his business to know all he could about PSP so that he was able to do as much as possible for his mum, that experience he is now able to pass on to others.
He cannot promise that Audrey will be able to read again but he can improve her sight for eating and watching television and he can stop the double vision experienced by sufferers. If you are able to i would recommend a visit to him, the telephone number is 01273719012.
Good Luck to you all
