I have been treated for BRVO with 2 avastin injections and 2  laser treatments. I am a diabetic and have hypertension.What are the chances that my vision is restored back to the earlier form?

    Pretty cool post. I just found your site and wanted to say
    that I’ve really liked reading your blog posts. Anyway
    I’ll be subscribing to your feed and I hope you write again soon!

  • Without examining you personally, I am not able to provide any medical advice (and you should NOT take my comments as such). That said, I would like to make the following observations, while at the same time encouraging you to consult with a retinal specialist as soon as possible, if you have not already done so (or if so, obtain a second opinion).

    My guess is that you have had several treatment with little improvement in your vision. If there is residual macular edema at this time, there is still hope for improvement and every effort can be made to get rid of the remaining macular edema to maximize your vision.

    Several issues a retinal specialist should consider: 1. Do you have diabetic retinopathy? 2. Have you had laser treatment due to the diabetic retinopathy?, and 3. Does your vision continue to improve after all these treatments?

    If you wish, please contact me through my website link below and perhaps I can make a referral.
