Dr. A.S. Desai :

Hello, Welcome to Pearl.com

Dr. A.S. Desai :

Are you available for chat now?

Dr. A.S. Desai :

You have not mentioned where exactly is the scar in the eye- on the cornea ( visible externally) or in the macula ( not seen externally) ?

Dr. A.S. Desai :

Going by your description , it looks like you have a macular scar ( inside the eye in the retina). Unfortunately it is a permanent condition with not much hopes for a cure. So far there are no known proven treatment modalities for treatment of macular scar.

Dr. A.S. Desai :

Wherever you look appears blind because of a central scotoma ( non-seeing area in the visual field) due to the scar.

Dr. A.S. Desai :

I am afraid that I had to give the facts so bluntly.

Customer :

yes i am available

Customer :

the scar is in the middle of the eye

Dr. A.S. Desai :

Is it seen externally on the cornea?

Customer :

i can't see any scar, looking on mirror

Dr. A.S. Desai :

In that case the scar must be in the macula only.

Dr. A.S. Desai :

Sorry but this is an irreversible condition.

Dr. A.S. Desai :

Are you there?

Customer :

yes

Customer :

when i close one eye and look, the main spot where i look is blind and i can see the surroundings

Dr. A.S. Desai :

Yes, that is exactly what a central scotoma is.

Customer :

what i can do now any treatment for this

Dr. A.S. Desai :

Unfortunately it is a permanent condition with not much hopes for a cure. So far there are no known proven treatment modalities for treatment of macular scar.

Customer :

ok thanks, XXXXX XXXXX operation

Customer :

any chance to cure

Dr. A.S. Desai :

No cure as of now

Dr. A.S. Desai :

I am afraid that I had to give the facts so bluntly.

Dr. A.S. Desai :

Please feel free to ask follow up questions if any.
