feeling like im the only one

Hi I was just wondering if anyone can give me information on coates disease. Ive only just discovered at the age of 19 why I went blind in my left eye and even tho we live in a modern age and there are other people that are blind in one eye out there I can't find anything really to use as a point of reference about coates disease. I just feel very alone

Re: feeling like im the only one



Did you try typing the name of the eye condition into Google? A number of links show up that might be useful.

Incidently, it is spelled Coat's Disease.

Your not alone. I've been blind all my life due to premature birth.
