They create an opening on the top of my sinus bone, through the eye socket of the skull and decompressed the optic nerve to the opening. They didn't want to cut it since it is close to the brain, if they try to eliminate it might cause blindness.Now I am getting better everyday but still too early to tell if I am 100%. My left eye's vision was suppressed and now i am pretty much back to 20/20. Hope you are doing well
Regards, Jonathan From San Francisco
I had a similar surgery that you had 5 weeks ago and my eye was crossed as well. It's arightlmost getting back to normal, can move my eye to the all the way, but somehow it's a bit off to the left. I had a schwanoma growth that they treated me as glaucoma for a yr. Then I had a MRI since it is not getting better, and found out about the mass at the end of the nerve. So I had 2 ENT doc and 1 Opthamologist to work on my nerve.
