Surgery

Hey,
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!

Re:Surgery



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.
