Diplopia surgery?

Hello everyone, I'm new to this site having found it through Google. I must apologise for my user name as I couldn't think of anything so decided to use my favourite drink. I had a brain tumour removed 18 months ago and after having my eye stitched down for the past 15 months due to not being able to blink due to facial palsy after my op I'm am left with diplopia. My question is is there any alternative to surgery to correct my eye, I have tried different strength prisms but without success.

As I've had no replies to my question does anyone know of any eye exercises I might try to get my eye back in place

Hi G&T, Welcome to the website.
We're a happy bunch most of the time but a certain amount of patience and prodding is sometimes needed to get a response. Suppose that reflects the great variety of eye conditions ppl can have. Well done getting over the surgery, but sorry I can't help with your exact condition. Keep punchin' gal.
G.L. with it. Beefy.
