Customer Question
Hi I was woundering if there...
Hi
I was woundering if there is anything that can be done for scarring on the eye caused by severe myopia.
I am 55 years old and had clear lens implants done 11 years ago bilaterally.
My vison was -1600 correction and improved to-350 . I now wear hard torak contacts .
I have been experiencing loss of vision on the left eye laterally. I had a Fundas photos done and was told it is just scarring on my eye. Is there any new surgeries available at this time to correct this problem.
Thank you ,
Lydia

Hello,

Welcome to Just Answer

I guess the scarring mentioned for the reduced vision in the left eye is a chorioretinal degeneration with macular involvement. Unfortunately there is no surgery or medicines available for myopic chorioretinal degeneration as of now.

Thanks and best wishes
