Dear cyro808,

The best option is to seek the care of an eyeMD specializing in neuro-ophthalmology and/or retina who is familiar with your diagnosis.  Depending on your condition, there may be treatments. For example, recent studies have shown that gene therapy treatments of a condition known as Leber’s congenital amaurosis may enable children to regain enough visual function to navigate an obstacle course.
