Dear patient
3 Rd cranial.nerve also known as opthalmic nerve supplies eye muscles. myasthenia gravis affects skeletal muscles of whole body and not only eyes. Symptoms of both are different. thymus cancer is associated with myasthenia gravis so treatment of thymoma may lead to correction of MG. you need to consult opthalmic surgeon for detailed assessment. Visit to neurophysician is also required.
