Customer Question

I have had histo scars in both eyes since I weas 21. I am now 60. Lost the central vision in early 20's in left eye. Can see light and dark at the sides, no central vision. Now the right eye has scars but so far they have been away from the central vision. I had a wet spot develop about 3 yrs ago, and it took 3 shots in eye about two weeks apart to stop the growth. My Dr said she used colon cancer chemo in the shots. Said it has proved very well in stopping the disease. At this time I am in trhe process of trying to qualify for a double lung transplant. Some of the medicines I read about port op scare me to death. some say they came affect vision. Should I get names of meds. and get back to you?

Dr Rick,

I'm at work right now. I'll have to drag out my files on meds for post transplant and let you know at a later date. I hope this is ok. Thanks, Kay sarvich
