Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
I can't give you a number off the top of my head, but it would be very rare.
Also, a coloboma of 97% of your retina? I've never seen a coloboma that large, so I would put the chance of that at very, very unlikely.
also, if you had untreated congenital cataracts that were large enough to block your vision you would have significant associated amblyopia......
i read that having congenital cataratcs in the first place is about one in 10,000, i couldnt even put a number on a birthmark covering the retina in the seperate eye, i am also upset because i cannot get a drivers license or anything like that yet i also cannot claim disability benefits and have to pay full travel, do you know what would constitue having disability benifits
In the USA you are considered legally blind if you are unable to see the 20/200 line on the standard eye chart with your best glasses in place.
I'm not sure what it is in Australia.
I find it hard to believe that you have a coloboma covering 97% of your retinal surface. That just does't make sense from an embryological point of view
Does this make sense to you?
I guess you have stepped away from your computer.
