I have been told that I have juxtafoveal Retinal telangiectasia

Customer Question

I have been told that I have juxtafoveal Retinal telangiectasia of both eyes. I am 66 years old, do not have diabetes or hypertension. I was told by my local physician that there is nothing that can be done for me. In the last six months, I have a great loss especially in my (rt) eye. Is there any information you can give to me as far as medication (injections) etc. I live in Sioux City, Iowa, which is about 2hours north of Omaha. Please be of some help to me, or send me to someone you know that can assist me.Thank you,Bonnie XXXXXXXXXX-XXX-XXXXXXXX XXXXXXXX XXXX.XXXXX XXXX, XXXX XXXXX
