Given all your eye has done through if the vision remains at 20/80 that is a good result. Without cutting edge treatment you eye would be totally blind (no light perception).
You can hope and you can pray for a recovery to full normal vision but that would not be the most common outcome. Protect the other eye and consider giving up all contact sports.
thank you very much Dr john c hagan,,,,,,,,,,,,,u mean i never come to get full vision anymore right,,,,,,,,,,,ok as u say i protect my right eye........but its difficult to face the world in one eye and compete also,,,,,,,,,,any other recommendation to me if so,,can u do me this favour.......
No MD can tell exactly what will happen in the future. All we can say is what usually happens. Usually an eye with your problems does not make a full recovery to normal vision. You can hope. You can pray. time will tell. Discuss with your surgeons
