Thanks for checking!
I go every six months to an opthalmologist. She is keeping a close eye on me (no pun intended). My first visit, they took pictures of my optic nerve, etc.
I just went back for my second visit last week and passed my field vision test with flying colors. They checked the macula and it still looks fine.
I am so sorry to hear your daughter is going through this. Has her doctor started her on any medications? Unfortunately fatigue is a common symptom of lupus and not much can be done about it other than rest. Plaquenil helps some with this but it takes about 3 months to start to work. In the meantime, could your daughter go to school for 1/2 a day? Can she be homeschooled? I know how awful the fatigue is and her body really does need the rest. Welcome to our group and please feel free to ask any questions you would like. Why don't you start a new thread with this post? (Just click on "new topic" and give it a title) I'm afraid the other members will not see it here and I'm sure they would like to offer advise too. Again, welcome. This is a great place for advise and comfort.
