my ex wife was diagnosed with MFC almost 8 years ago and like you she was in her early thirties and had silght nearsighterness. with all of the tests run and steroids and laser surgery and vitrectomy surgery, nothing has helped. Her vision continues to get worse with time due to flare-ups of the disease. She think the flare-ups may have something to do with stress. but thats her opinion. she is legally blind now, but still retains some sight in both eyes. she raises my boys and has finished courses in Law and has worked up until last month, so the disease hasn'y slowed her down much, but it does take its toll. she is living with it, so no matter what happens, don't lose hope, she hasn't.
Be strong and carry on.
