CATARACTS /CUSHINGS RELATED
I WAS DIAGNOSED WITH CUSHINGS DISEASE CAUSED BY A PITUITARY ADENOMA (AFTER YEARS OF SICKNESS) I UNDERWENT BRAIN SURGERY TO REMOVE IT. AT THAT TIME I WAS ALSO DIAGNOSED WITH ANOTHER (NON CANCEROUS) TUMOR LOCATED IN THE OCCIPITAL LOBE OF MY BRAIN. AFTER SURGERY I HAD LOST ALL PERIPHERAL VISION IN BOTH EYES. IT NEVER RETURNED AND I WAS TOLD THERE IS NO SURGERY TO FIX IT. I HAVE CUSHINGS DISEASE RELATED DIABETES SO I HAVE REGULAR VISION CHECK UPS (SO FAR SO. GOOD) BUT WITHIN 3 MONTHS OF MY LATEST CHECKUP I BEGAIN TO HAVE PROBLEMS WITH MY VISION, AND HAVE BEEN DIAGNOSED WITH CATARACTS IN BOTH EYES, NOW 2 MONTHS LATER I AM ALMOST COMPLETELY BLIND. THESE CATARACTS ARE STEROID RELATED AND ARE  AGGRESSIVE.. IS LASIC SURGERY AN OPTION FOR ME OR ANY OTHER SURGERY. (I AM WITHOUT ANY INSURANCE)

LASIK is not an option.  You need to have cataract surgery.
