Eye Doctor: When Should Women Go?
Eye Doctor: When Should Women Go?
2 of 3 : Current video

Michelle recalls the drops she uses to treat keratoconus, a deteriorating cornea, and explains when a woman should take time to make an appointment with an eye doctor.

I use two kinds of eye drops. Every day I use like a refresh drop or something to wetten the eye because I do suffer from eye dryness as well and she also gives me antibiotics which helps keep infections away when I do have scratches and everything else and it seems to promote healing as well. So it does expedite I think the scratches unless it’s just a placebo effect, I am not quite sure which, but it does help.

Any time you have any change in your vision or if there’s any remote pain in your eye go see an eye doctor. It’s your only, I mean that’s the only way you can see so why not go get checked out? That’s my answer.

I went, when I first was diagnosed with this disease I went because I was having some fatigue after reading, which was unusual and that’s when I found out. I think it’s crazy not to pursue any change in vision.
