Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hello and thanks for your question.
In many states you only need one eye which sees satisfactorily (20/40 or better usually, but varies by state), but that requirement also varies by state. Is this 20/100 vision in your left eye with wearing glasses or contacts?
Also, have you had any surgery or trauma to that eye?
How about any history of an eye crossing in or out, or patching of an eye?
I was born like 3 months early so that might have something to do with it. And yes, my vision is that way WHILE wearing glasses.
I had surgery in both eyes when I was a baby, due to the crossing issue, but other than that, I have no problems since or disease of the eyes.
Were you ever patched as a child?
Did you ever have good vision in the left eye or similar to the right eye?
In light of your history, I do not think there is any surgery that could be done to improve that eye's eyesight. If the vision in that eye has been poor since birth, it would stay poor no matter what surgery you had in that eye. Amongst other problems that may be happening in the eye which have to do with your extreme nearsightedness and being premature, amblyopia (poor eyesight since birth) in your right eye would make it so there is no potential for improved vision despite surgery.
Does that help answer your question?

Unfortunately an entire eye transplant is not possible yet. Only part of the eye can be transplanted right now and that's the cornea, which unfortunately wouldn't help you any. Sorry.
