I have had swollen eyelids left and right, since May 2007. I had cataract surgery in September. Before my cataract surgery I had double vision, swollen eyelids and the left eye is lazy or the muscles aren't moving correctly. I have been to an Allergist and the swollen eyelids have improved some, more on my unoperated eye than my left one that had cataract surgery. My eyes are dry and I have to tape the left one down at night or it flies open, dries out and is very painful when I awake. My double vision has worsen in the past 2 months. Not to mention looking up, down to the left or right is useless. It is so doubled, I can't make anything out. Driving is a treat. I am 47 and was just tested for Diabetes and Graves disease. The doctor I just saw mentioned a Neurologist. Well I feel like I am going to worry myself to death before I find out what this is. Any sugessions?
