Have any of you guys had surgery in the past for your vision? When I was 2 I had two surgeries for strabismus and it went away a little bit. Everyone I meet who is visually impaired has never had anything!

Hi. I've had that when i was 1 year old. I didn't like it.

yes i lost it in my bad (left) eye and had surgery on monday, it hurts alot but i hope it wil get better. mine is all because of retinopathy of prematuriy which is where your retnas detach and that causes you to loose some or all of your vision.

I cant really complain about the surgeries I had because I would have been completely blind without them. I have practically no occular muscles even with the surgery
