I was diagnosed with Graves disease December 2014. It started in June when vision stated to get blurry. I went to my opthalmologist who gave me a new prescription for glasses. Teo months of wearing the new glasses my vision continured to get worse. I started noticing trembling in my hands, my shins would cramp and I would sweat profusely. Since my diagnoses I ve been on medication and everything seems to have improved except for my vision. I get he swelling and runny eyes at night. I'm constantly wiping and using eye drops to help with the dryness. My job is to be on the compter all day and most days I struggle tremendously trying to see whats on my computer screen. Some days I sit at my desk and do nothing because I cannot see anything. I had a break down last week where I just sat at my desk crying because of how bad my vision is. I've had steroid pulse treatment that did nothing but make me gain alot of weight. This disease has been life altering for me. I've been dealing with the blurred vision for almost a year. Is there anything else I can do to help with this.
