Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hello and thanks for your question. Is your daughter near-sighted? Did he say anything about a choroidal nevus or pigmented mass? Does she have any medical problems such as diabetes, high blood pressure or auto-immune diseases like lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, Crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis?
Hi Dr DanB, Yes she is near sighted. No mention of choroidal nevus or pigmented mass although they did mention that they did see retinal abnormalities which looked "inflamed" possibly due to some type of "leakage". The drug they used to inject into her eyeball was avastin. I have made an appt with a different opthamologist who is a retinal specialist so we will see what he says.
No other medical problems. Perhaps occsaional low blood sugar. Danielle is very fit and health other than this issue with her eye.
Thanks Dr Dan. I very much appreciate your detailed response. At least we have a possible root cause that actually makes sense. This is more than we have received from the actual Opthamologist and his colleague that have been doing these examinations on my daugther. I don't know if they don't have time to explain or or if they think we are to ignorant to be able to understand or they just know about CSR. In any case, thanks again. We will see what the new Opthamologist has to say and we will then ask about CSR if he does not mention it. You have fully answered my questions. Great job. Regards, Mark
