Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Yes she was seen by a retina specialist at The Nuffield in Newcastle upon Tyne.
From what I know they did not get a diagnosis but said one eye is fine but the other is not and she may eventually loose her sight in the one eye. Laser treatment has not been recommended. They said it would stay the same, get worse and she would eventually loose her sight. She is not know to have diabetes but waiting for blood results to come back from the local hospital which will take another three weeks. She has just been informed not to do any vigourous exercise.
She will go in three weeks to get her blood results.
As you will recall I emailed regarding my mothers eye. I have more information and she has been diagnosed with
"right centre retnal vein occlusion" and will wait two weeks for blood results. We would like to know what is the prognosis of this. Can any thing be done? Laser treatment etc and will her eye deteriorate and will she loose her sight?
Hope you will be able to give me some more information. Her right eye is fine (they checked this out) but is panicking her other eye may get affected? No known cause of diabetes.
Apparently when seen by her consultant they said her right eye is fine and can see no problems with this eye. I think she is having anxiety attacks thinking her right eye is going deteriorate too.
We just need to now can anything be done or will her left eye deteriorate and we are not sure of time scale or does this just depend on person to person
Is there any treatment for this? She is keen to have surgery. She has been told that there is no treatment just laser treatment if eye becomes painful. I know eye injections is an option but can these really help for CRVO? Also what can she do to prevent her eye condition getting worse.
Also can you recommend any anti depressants? She has taken 3 lots from the doctors and they have all affected her eye by making them abit blury. She is pannicking that this will happen to her other eye but been told thats just a slim chance.
Any information would be appreciated.
Thank you (UK)
