Next month I will have orbital decompression surgery to address some of the issues with my eyes that have been caused by thyroid eye disease. There is a 30% chance that the surgery could cause some double vision which means that after recovery surgery, which can take up to two weeks, I may have second surgery a few months later to correct the double vision.

Recovery could be painful, and I may have to keep my eyes covered in bandages, something that I think will be challenging for me.

  1. @khurtwilliams That sounds very tough. I hope it goes well. A friend of mine has terrible problems with pressure in her eye — has to use drops multiple times per day, often has her eye ‘needled’ to reduce pressure. I have an inkling of how it is to have such a problem.
