I also would like to welcome you here and I know there are many people that are here to answer questions and concerns, First off I would like to say how sorry I am that your Mother has LBD, I know it is hard on all of you.
Your question about eyesight, yes it comes with the disease, my husband had so much trouble with his eyes and I thought with the cataracts it would be best to have them fixed, worse thing I could have done, the focus problems were worst and when I asked the Dr why she said Our eye muscles move at the same time and that is how we focus but because of the disease their eye muscles don't move at the same time and thats why there is issues, my husband also suffered with constant dry eyes and I put drops in 4x day.
I hope this helps answer your concerns!
Hi everyone - I am new to the boards and everything I have read is wonderful. Have been on the LBD rollercoaster for 4 years now. Lost my dad to Alzheimers 3 years ago and have seen a big decline in Mom's LBD the past year. One question I have is can LBD cause a problem with sight? My Mom has had macular degeneration for 20 years and is legally blind but was always able to eat her meals, and now she complains her sight is worse. Hospice nurses (she also has pulmonary fibrosis) and has been on hospice since June. think she is forgetting she has sight problems. I think I will call her neurologist on Monday, she has not seen him in a year. Using a walker now and very difficult to get her in and out of the house, mostly because she hates to go out.... I know I am rambling but if anyone has heard of this symptom please let me know, I dont think she will understand what an eye doctor is trying to tell her so I do not want to put her through that. Any help is appreciated?????
