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.

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. ?
