Surgery on the eyes always causes vision problems for a short period after surgery Chances are your friend will need additional surgeries to fix her lids. It is not as bad as it sounds. She will just have to be patient and try to let the doctor take his/her time to make sure that the surgeries are done when needed. If they are done to soon they may need to be done again latter. Have your friend write the the National Graves Disease Foundation/I for info. I have posted the address in previous messages. Keep in touch and let us know how your friend is doing.
