| | More Details? Re: Not having macular surgery
Thanks to the three of you, and would you mind telling us how the macular hole was discovered/diagnosed, and if the oil obstructed vision, or leaked out, felt like water-logged, or anything like that?
I too had Yag treatment after cataract surgery, and it helped a lot. Had previously had a lot of laser treatments for Diabetic Retinopathy, causing the need for cataract surgery in both eyes, and now have Macular damage in worst eye, from Retinopathy, and probably the laser scars, (also probably some age-related Macular Degeneration, sometimes can see TV pretty well, to my surprise, tho' weak, and sometimes distortion, don't know if there are any holes, and most opthalmologists want to give up on that eye, but one says there's things they can inject. (I've read something pretty bad about Avastin, can't remember exactly what, would have to look it up again.) I'm now 76, Diabetic since 1980's, and Low Thyroid, should not have had injections of Kenalog, "Metabolic Drainage Problem", last one reducing vision from 20/40 to 20/50, don't know if damage is permanent, a year ago. Still had some in other eye from 7 yrs ago, finally took a few bitten-off extra chips of my levothyroxine 300, and think the debris from the 7 yrs eye is finally gone, the one w/ the macula damage. Thanks in advance for a little more information if you don't mind.
