Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
From what you have posted it sounds like you have some diabetic macular edema in addition to your diabetic retinopathy.
Are you being treated by an ophthalmologist? What has she suggested?
I see that you are offline. 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..... :)
the opthlamologist said there was no treatment for rpe and signed me off. will the background retinopathy hinder the rpe. the tumor causes me balance problems and i have having balance training at the hospital but my balance is really relying on my eyes. shall i go back to drs. or is the retinopathy not really a problem. thanks
hi, just an update, saw specialist yesterday, epithilitis still going strong. he thinks retinopathy may have been misdiagnosed! every thing ive researched anout epithilitis says this will correct itself but ive had it over two years now.
thought you might be interested at the outcome.
kind regards xxx
