My first thought was - no, I really have nothing good to suggest. I get questions sometimes from patients who report that the poor vision in the bad eye is messing up the overall vision in the good idea. In these cases, I suspect that the bad eye may have initially been the dominant eye, years ago, before the problem that caused the loss of vision. I don't have any magic answer here in this case, sorry. I would focus your thoughts on the good news that the right eye is still in good shape and make sure to keep close follow up with your ophthalmolgist to make sure everything is taken care of, there. I hate to tell you to patch or cover the bad eye for fear that you would not be able to monitor it properly for any vision loss. I suppose as long as you checked your amsler daily, you could try patching the bad eye while you read, but not when driving or other essential tasks. You may just need to work through this, but keep the focus on the overall health of both eyes and be thankful for your stable condition.
I would recommend that you perform an AMsler grid immediately. If it has changed from what you remember, you might require treatment for the ocular histo. Seek the care of an eyeMD specializing in retina.
