Last May I had my usual eye test and a new prescription. I am long sighted with a correction for astigmatism and also had an episode of a Posterior Vitreous Detachment in both eyes. I am also hypothyroid and suspect I may not be converting well thought it has also been suggested here that RT3 could be a problem. I was with Dr S so hoping to see a new expert soon. I don't read an awful lot but started to find reading not easy though distance fine. I found I was closing one eye to read then found I was actually closing the weaker eye!
Back to the Opticians who decided the frames needed tightening up which helped a lot. Christmas arrived with new books to read and I find I couldn't read for long using both eyes. I go into town once a month but kept forgetting to call in until yesterday. A young lady came to talk to me and performed some basic tests in the shop then asked me about my thyroid. Until then I had forgotten that last May I noticed the recent scar and asked if it was due to her thyroid so we had chatted about it and she remembered. She thought my thyroxine may need increasing and suggested a new eye test. I was unaware that you could have eye problems and be hypo. I certainly don't have the bulging eyes from being over treated, in fact I think completely the opposite! If I can see any problem its bags underneath. Her suggestion is we re-test and depending on what they find send a referral letter to my GP suggesting an appointment at the eye clinic.
Has anyone else had a similar problem or any comments to make? My re-test is next week and my chance to ask the Ophthalmologist any questions but not sure what I should be asking.
