Adie's Tonic Pupil Eye Patch

I have Adie's Tonic Pupil. Unfortunatily I work at a computer and/or do hand drawings all day. This is something that has come very recently into my life. I think I may have missed it if it wasn't for my job. Computer screens are very blurry/double as are the drawings I work on. I find myself constantly closing my eye. Closing your eye for 6 hours a day is hard and uncomfotable.

1. Has anyone had any success with an eye patch?

2. Does closing your eye for long periods have any negative effects?

Thank-you to anyone who answers

Re: Adie's Tonic Pupil Eye Patch

I see your post was Sept 2010. I hope you are doing better now. I recently found out I have Adie's pupil too. It is new to me and I am beginning to do research on it. Have you learned any tricks to this?

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

Laura, I have a permentantly dialated pupil and am interested in the pupilloplasty, where did you go to have it done? Do you need any drops or meds or was it just a one time thing? Thanks
