My husband is diagnosed with Parkinson's disease, he also is diagnosed with Marfan syndrome. Recently we have noticed this his eyes do not dilate when room gets dark. We know he has a cataract but the doctors cannot dilate his eyes either. Has anyone else ever had similar problems with Parkinson's disease? If so what was the plan of care?
Does anyone have suggestions for making the home safe at night when he needs to use the toilet, he is unable to make it to the light switch on the wall and regrettably or fortunately, not sure on this one, he does not wish to wake me up to assist him by turning on the light. He also can't find a flashlight in the dark, we have attached it to the rail on the bed, but again this isn't working as he can't see. I have a night light on in the bedroom, but the light is not enough for his vision. Does anyone have suggestions for lighting to prevent his running into walls or falling over something that cannot be physically moved?
