Hi everyone I've been having problems with my eyes for about 2months now, started in one eye but is in both now , blurred vision and double vision, pressure pain around eye area, which seems to be getting worse as weeks go by. I went to optician 3 weeks ago and she didn't think it was Ted as then double vision was only in one eye, but she referred me to ophthalmology dept at local hospital have received appointment but it's not till may so I am a bit concerned that
A. That they won't have the expertise to deal with Ted desease and will be referred to moorfieds hosp which will mean more waiting before treatment.
B. Should I see gp and see if she will refer me straight to moorfieds hosp in a hope of getting right treatment quicker .Will it do any harm to wait for treatment?
I have started taking selenium as read that can help. By the way I should mention I had graves desease for 20yrs any advice would be really appreciated
