Thank you for everything! I Really Appreciate that you took the time to write something back. It is one of those things, I never knew how important and complex we are as human beings. And once we loose something, then that's when we learn that our whole body is there for a reason.. I'm Glad that your son went on with life. That's what i need to do. I'll remember to always wear eye protection or to take care of my body in general. Once again tHANKS.! Best of wishes for the new year to you and your family..:)
I understand your worries. My son (now 18) had a RD after suffering a central retinal vein occlusion before the start of his senior year, varsity football. He played with steroid injections into the eye, keeping the RD under close supervision. He wore a helmet visor. After the season completed, he had major surgery. The RD healed, but couldn't regain vision because of the scarring with the CRVO. Glad that we had an amazing place called the Sabates Eye Center here in KC to help us through this process. He went on to play college football. Protective eyewear (medical visor or glasses) may also give you the confidence you need to play without worry. Good luck.
