1. If the eye is totally blind (no light perception) there is no cure.
2. Since he went blind due to accident it should have no effect on the other eye. Yearly exams by Eye MD opthalmologist and eye protection is very important.

NO. If you cut off one arm the other arm doesn't get weaker or wear out because there's not another arm helping it.

good day doctor.
My brother 23 years of age, had met a motorcycle accident 2 weeks ago. His left eye can no longer see anything. Left pupil is still reactive to light. Left eye moves the same direction with the right eye. Is there any possibility that he could get back the sight of his left eye again?

The odds are against it however only a real live examination by an Eye MD ophthalmologist can tell. The most important thing is to protect the good eye from disease, injury and the effects of unhealthy living

Thank you doctor. Is there any medical or diagnostic examination that he could do to know if there is any retinal detachment or any damaged nerve that is connecting to the brain which prevents the eye from seeing anything? My brother said he can't feel any pain inside his eye or anywhere in the eyesocket. His eyeball, as we can see, is still the same as before...
