Can ciliary muscle exercises restore (some) accommodation for a 73 yo male? If so, what are they, or please recommend sources for such exercises. Is there any other treatment in this regard. Thank you.

I presume at your: age you are taking a vitamin D supplement because you have been diagnosed as being deficient. Otherwise, unless you have osteoporosis or some other unusual disease for a man your age, you shouldn't need this. If you are deficient, this is a reasonable, perhaps low, replacement dose and should not be causing notable side effects. Toxicity is usually reported at 40,000 IU or higher. Review with Doc ...Read more

Without examination it would be impossible to advise. Once a serious illness is ruled out u shd see ur doctor to overcome ur anxiety disorder with medications and psychotherapy if required. ...Read more

7 months ago when I had the botox in my neck it partially paralyzed my swallowing muscles. So that's why my new doctor wants to put me on PEG tube. ?

????: This story does not make sense. Botox injected in the neck can have some effect on the swallowing muscles if not done properly, or too much is given....but to the point that you would require a PEG tube sounds like something fishy going on. Botox only lasts 3-4 months anyways. Not sure what advice I can offer without more details. ...Read more

I need a doctor who is willing to continue my medication regimen of cyclogyl (cyclopentolate) (for cataracts, to avoid surgery), and duoneb for COPD.  Can you help?

Two specialties: You want to find an eye doctor for the cyclogyl (cyclopentolate) which is used to help with posterior subcapsular cataracts to delay surgery - and a pulmonary doctor for the duoneb. Most doctors would avoid being the primary prescriber for both of these. First try to get a refill from the doctors who initially wrote these prescriptions. ...Read more
