Customer Question
My father is having very...
My father is having very serious problems with his eyes. He is a diabetic, however his doctor said that his eye problems aren't a result of the diabetes. He was also bit by a rattlesnake in 1999 and went untreated for weeks, once we learned what had cause hit illness, the doctors had to "kill" the rest of his thyroid and give him med's. His eyes recently started bulging (alot), very swollen, moist. He has constant double vision and extensive blurred vision. He has been to several doctors and we have no clue what is going on with him.
