    I'm really interested in talking to you, I'm back at my consultant tomorrow and think he will discharge me as there is nothing more they can do but you being at Moorefields will be good for us to know what each other have and have had done etc.

      Hi I don't normally do forums. I have had thyroid eye disease look it up! This is my second op and yes the brain has to help the eyes after op my double vision is also on a slant! If you think the consultant will discharge you ask for a referral to Moorfields to the Strabismus clinic 'she' is very good it's worth the journey. I had to have my thyroid removed to stop it overacting. It would be good to chat but don't know how we can do that? Good luck.

      I have had a squint for years but was corrected with glasses until it was too strong and had to have an operation it all happened really quickly I was ok with my glasses one minute and the next it was an operation first one went wrong my brain threw my eye off to the right so had it done again and the same happened so had it done a third time (operation done differently) thankfully this one worked in keeping my eyes straight but double vision is so bad it's constant and they have said intractable Diplopia and there is nothing they can do for it, I have to block the vision in one eye just to see normally, 30 years old and that's it for life. Have you still got double vision now?

      Mine started as an eye infection woke up with double vision crooked yes by covering one eye I see normally but after this op have been asked not too cover the eye but try to look through the double vision for a while to give the brain a chance to help the corrections. The op is only a week ago but already the sight is different. I'm 73 but I intend to see well again do not give up. Good night good luck for tomorrow

      I looked uy Thyroid Eye Diesase and I feel for you, looks painful. Mine is from a squint but now they say I have lost the ability to fuse images and there is nothing I can do. Been seeing the consultant for a year now and had three operations in that time but the double vision has persisted and will continue too, it's a real shame but have to just try my best with one eye for ever. I hope you get sorted soon xx
