There are TONS of conditions etc. that can cause complete or partial blindness. Diabetes is the number one cause of blindness! Others are glaucoma, macular degeneration, optic neuritis, retinitis pigmentosa...

uveitis, pars planitis---can both lead to glaucoma and cataracts--if not treated early and properly.

Do you have PP? I was diagnosed 3 years ago with it. Aggrevating disease. There is an online support group that can be joined for uveitis sufferers that is wonderful. It can be found at [url=""][/url]
