    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,

    My Dad is a diabetic patient for 30 plus years. He is 63 now. Recently got diplopia and ptosis on his right eye. MRI scan shows nerve inflamation. what is the possible treatment plan
    davedsel responded:

    I did a Yahoo search for the terms "displopia and ptosis" and got several hits. You can do research in the same way.

    Also, you should post your questions in the WebMD Eye Health Center here:

    We are not doctors here and would not be able to provide a possible treatment plan. Using the internet and the WebMD Eye Health Center would be a good way to find answers. Your best way would be to talk to your dad's doctor.

    I pray you find the answers you seek soon.
