Customer Question

I am not very good in English and do trust that you can understand my question My husband had very poor sight since he was a boy He's wearing very thick glasses He was recently diagnosed with cataract, keratoconus, glocouma, and blepharospasm He had botox injected by Doctors 2 times but seems to be allergic It helped nothing for the spasm but his mouth was affected because the muscle around his mouth would not work properly His whole face are starting to make spasm He's walking around most of the time with his he's eyes closed because he can not keep them open He is a farmer and needs to move around but it's getting more diffucult to get along Could magnesium, calcium and omega with a good multivitamin make a difference? We had he's thymus gland checked and it is normal

Dr. Rick :

Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.

Dr. Rick :

I don't think that dietary supplements, such as what you have suggested, will really improve his situation much, if at all.

Dr. Rick :

If you can find a neuro-ophthalmologist to examine your husband that would probably be best.

Dr. Rick :

Does this make sense to you?

Dr. Rick :

Hi Dr Rick Reference order number 10017692 - 447 We are searching for a Neuro-ophthamologist in South-Africa and really appreciate your answer I don't know whether I've clicked the correct "accept answer" but we are VERY SATISFIED with your answer. I google and could not find a Neuro-ophthamologist We got some information relating to the issue at the eye institute in Pretoria but they could only refer me to the specialist my husband was seeing (Ophthamologist) but they are not aware of a Neuro-ophthamologist I've asked our GP and he will try to find us one. Don't know if you are giving information regarding possible references but if possible and we can receive a hospital or research centre who can give us a referral we would really appreciate it
Thank you once again for your excellent service!

Your local doctors will know a lot more then I would concerning hospital and/or research centers in your area....all I could do is look for names on the internet, which I bet you could do better then I could. I am located in Wisconsin USA and don't know much about your area :(
Yes. You pressed the correct accept button. I am glad that I could help you.
If you have a chance drop me a note and let me know how things turn out. You can post to this thread or ask for me at the main screen at no additional charge.
