Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Dr DanB, I read your answer regarding "How is retina thickening treated? What causes this condition?" on http://www.justanswer.com/eye-health/5b3u9-retina-thickening-treated-causes-conditi.html. I would like further amplification.I suspect (but who knows) that my retina thickening was caused by a blow to my eyes a few years ago. I am 70 yrs old now.Scar? floaters, retina thickening resulted. Scar and floaters were removed by vitrectomy and membrane peel. Then Ketorolac drops were used 3-4 times a day and 3 Avastin injections in the eye at 1 month intervals. (If needed, I can send you the surgen's report and copies of laser tomography printouts). The retina thickness in my right eye was 420 um on 2/7/2013.The webpage asked me 'what I have tried so far'. Not what my question is :-)My questiona are: - would laser intervention be applicabe?- would laser light harm the nerves?- what other methods or procedures could possibly work to reduce the retina thickness?
Yes, please go ahead and answer my inquiry originally directed to Dr DanB
Any other treatment or operation, besides laser, that would be applicable?
