Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Are you there? What do I do next? I haven't consulted one of these sites before?
Yes, just a couple of additional questions. My right eye seems to be "shrinking"--can that be possible? the surface has a somewhat withered appearance such as fingers that have been under water too long. The whits of my eye is raw-steak red and hasn't improved much at all these last few days. Also, there is what looks to be a small, white cloud-like mass essentially in the center of my pupil that covers virtually the entire pupil, but is smaller today than two days ago. Does that shrinkage indicate a good thing or a bad thing? And finally, are there any significant probabilities that I can expect to have any sight restoration? Dr. Chang didn't give me much hope on that score.
You can be very direct with your answers. I am reconciled to just about any outcome at this point.
ok. That sounds encouraging. Thanks. Now, for the tough one: Seriously, can I expect much in terms of vision restoration? I am now only able to see shapes and shadows--having gone from essentially perfect vision. I just need an expert to tell me if I can expect any recovery of if there might be follow up procedures available.
Yes. Thank you. That essentially confirms the research I've done. I may be a candidate for that down the road; however, age and diabetes may preclude that option. At least I know what I'm most likely facing.
I appreciate your assistance and your candor this evening. I feel calmer. Thank you for you time. I'm now ending our conversation unless you have additional comments.
Thanks. That's all for me. I feel calmer and more informed. I appreciate your assistance.
