Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
depending on the depth an severity of your corneal ulcer there are a number of treatments available.
If the scar is very superficial, it can possibly be treated with a superficial keratectomy.
Also, a laser (phototherapeutic keratectomy) can be used to remove the scar.
If your scar is too large/deep for these therapies then a full thickness corneal transplant can be done. (PK)
Of course, any other ocular conditions, such as amblyopia (since you have had this since you were a very young child), cataract, retina problems etc, would not be improved by any of these therapies.
These treatments are done by an ophthalmologist, usually one trained as a cornea/external disease sub specialist. While I was not able to find a cornea specialist in your area using my sources, I did located a very well trained ophthalmologist:
He should be able to help you and, if necessary, refer you to a cornea specialist.
Does this answer your question?
I hope this information was helpful for you. But I do work for tips so I want to make sure you are happy before rating me. If you have another question on this or a related issue feel free to fire away. And please let me know if the rating system gives you any troubles. Thanks in advance, Dr. Rick
Thanx for the reply, roughly what is the cost for those treatments you have highlighted? I do think I might have retina issue as well ! Also the phone number of the Doctor you have given me is not appearing on the screen it is hidden on the right side of the screen.
