Dr. Rick :

Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.

Dr. Rick :

If your brother has been blind for 10 years and an ophthalmologist said his nerves were destroyed there maybe nothing that can be done.

Dr. Rick :

If, however, like the other doctor said, it is just because his lens is gone (aphakia) his vision might be able to be corrected with thick glasses or a lens implant.

Customer:

the nerves in his eye is sill good

Customer:

its his lens

Dr. Rick :

Ok. Does his treatment have to take place in Cuba?

Customer:

he lives in the Bahamas and cuba is close

Dr. Rick :

Ok. You can contact Dr. Marcelina Rio, President of the Cuban Society of Ophthalmologists. If he can't help your brother he will know who can.

Did you get the contact information I posted above?
Expert:  Dr. Rick replied 6 years ago.
I couldn't find Dr. Rio's contact info but the other two doctors I listed are ophthalmologists in Cuba who are associated with the American Academy of Ophthalmology through the Cuban Ophthalmology society. I guess they don't list their phone numbers in the directory.....
