removal of scar tissue fro eye
My sister had histoplasmosis in her eyes when she was in her 20's.She had laser surgery for this now her vision is blurred and she went to MD and he told her she had scar tissue build up and that was causing vision problem. MD said there was nothing could be done. Can't some type of surgery remove this scar tissue? If so what type and how effective is it.

Usually, once the scar has formed it means there has been significant damage and not much can be done.  Please have her see a retinal specialist ophthalmologist to discuss her specific findings and prognosis.
