    Any suggestions for finding an optho. who will understand my vision in the am is completely different in the am and afternoon and on and on. The last time I bought glasses it was a nightmare. He made them 3 times. At the time neither he nor I understood it was part of the broader picture of what was wrong with me. I was still in the denial stage then but its been so long not I have to go.

    This is merely a suggestion, because I'm not sure how to go about finding an opthomologist who's experienced in treating someone with fibro/CFS.....but my husband has Type 2 diabetes, & he has always found that the opthomologists that his diabetes doctors recommend seem very thorough, completely familiar with all eye diseases, etc. So I'm just wondering if a local endocrinologist or diabetes association could give you a recommendation for a competent, thorough opthomologist in your area? Hopefully, you'll get some better suggestions from others here; I found an allergist completely trained in dealing with fibro/CFS, and I'm sure there are some opthomologists out there who have skill in these areas, too, it's just how to locate them??

    Good luck, Sofy, hope you find somebody good!
