A kid I am related to has retina damage and his mother is asking if there are treatment options - currently the eye doc is saying that he can only stop more vision loss, but no restoration possible. I have some reports and need some opinions, if possible!
Looks like the left eye has some damage on the OCT you provided...is that the OCT of your friend's eye? If it is then there may not be too much that can be done. There are numerous causes of retina damage...libraries on this subject. Try to be more specific.
