Found 15th Apr 2011
Hey i have just developed bells palsy and was wondering where i can get an eye patch? I have looked on amazon but delivery is like £48 so thats a no no! Others are ones for pirates!

maybe somebody knows a shop that sells them? I have found cheaper ones on ebay.com but i kind of need it now.

cheers

Opticians, chemist, GP, hospital, eBay?

I'm so tempted to put 'hang on for the eye pad 2' but I can't bring myself to do it.

Don't know about eye patch but if your Bell's Palsy is associated with recent pregnancy, you need to boost your immune system.

Try Stress B and look for artificial tears if you can't blink

Basic info here

ive had bells palsy twice - why do you need an eye patch ? - you should not keep it covered you just need to close your eyelid with your fingers now and again and use eyedrops

Why not? lol, its because when im at work my face starts going all funny. The other side goes like the joker and the eye on the palsy side just goes all funny and it makes me feel sick. Can only stop it by holding the palsy eye with the palm of my hand. And it feels dry sometimes and stuff

So to kill afew birds with one stone a eye patch is the most efficient solution. And it will look more professional when dealing with clients instead of having my head in my hands!

eye eye captain!

just be careful if using one, depth perception may be altered radically making it unsafe to operate machinery or drive.
