Texanne I am already there! I have very poor eyesight in one eye and am losing vision in the other as well. If I stop and start thinking I will go nuts so I try like hell to start doing something, anything positive. The surgeries are scary cause you never know what might happen. I havent gotten too far with the cataract removal thing because the doc says it isnt bad enough yet. But it will come fast. My eyes are always changing. I don't know about the corneal transplant. Most of my problems are in the retina of both eyes. I wish the research would hurry up and catch up to the needs. My maculas are damaged from edema also. Hopefully at some point we may be able to get retinal transplants, etc.
Oh and doc also says I have cysts on the retina that just had the victrectomy. He was unclear about whether they would go away.
Does anyone know what causes them? Are they a type of infection? He has me on antibiotic ointment with erithromyacin.
The thing that is causing most of my problems is diabetes. I have dianetic retinopathy. But the odd thing is that I keep my diabetes under great control and I'm still getting worse. I can't understand why this is? Anyone?
