hello there

from the sounds of it, you had some macular involvement as well as optic nerve involvement which is typically why we give steroids. Unfortunately, the damage is done and there is no treatment in 2010 for this condition. If you have not had a recent exam you should be seen as there are treatable conditions that can slowly creep up after eye trauma that can cause distortion in vision. If your vision is stable since the injury, there is no treatment as I stated above. I wish you well, Dr. Stevens
