Re: Adie's Tonic Pupil Eye Patch

Hi, my pupil/iris no longer functions in my right eye.
Just in case it's helpful to anyone, my surgeon has carried out a 'pupilloplasty' procedure for me. This means my pupil is stitched into one size permanently at about 4mm.
We did this to try to help the symptom of photophobia, but for some people it can also help imporve acuity a little and of course the cosmetic improvement.
Maybe worth a chat with your eye doctor, see what the options are for you.
In my case, I had a choice of a permanently dilated pupil or one permanemtly at 4mm.
Best wishes
Laura
