Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
We have been experiencing problems with the chat system for the last few days. Our engineers are working on it. However, I'll switch over to the Q&A system. This system works a lot like 'text messaging' but an email is sent to each of us anytime something is posted to this thread. We can continue to work on your question there..... :)
Our chat has ended, but you can still continue to ask me questions here until you are satisfied with your answer. Come back to this page to view our conversation and any other new information. What happens now? If you haven’t already done so, please rate your answer above. Or, you can reply to me using the box below.
If your father has had a complete arterial occlusion and the blood supply was blocked to the retina then, I'm sorry to say, but nothing can be done to restore the function of the retina or give him back his eyesight.If, on the other hand, some of his vision loss is due to edema in the macula, without complete destruction of this part of his eye then, with treatment for this swelling, there might be something that can be done.I suggest a consultation with an ophthalmologist, or possibly a retina specialist, so that all of your fathers options can be explored.Does this make sense to you?Please remember the top 3 ratings are positives [great service is my goal] and this is how we are compensated. Rate my answer when you are satisfied. If you feel the need to rate low, please stop and reply to me via the REPLY TO EXPERT button with the issue you have. I will be happy to continue further and do everything I can to provide you with the service you seek.Otherwise, a high positive rating is very much appreciated, bonuses are great, and find me anytime for follow up.Let me know if you have further questions.
