    Eye gaze

    Hi there

    My father uses an eye gaze. Does anyone know whether he should always be able to use this, or is this something else that might have to stop one the disease progresses?

    Welcome to the forum Skip.

    Your dad should be able to continue using eye gaze for as long as he can keep his eyes open...

    My neck is very weak, so I wear a neck support to keep my head up and I can eye gaze away!

    Best wishes,

    Love Ellie.

    Hi Rumba;

    I found it hard on the eyes and tiring when I tried it seven years ago. I think some people are OK when they get used to it.

    Good to be able to do things though.

    Hugs, love Terry
