I understand you are very anxious and I really would like to help.  I need your help however.  Please ask your doctor what your real diagnosis is.  I need to know exactly what condition you have in order to give you any advise.  You must have retinas but I suspect that there was some problem in development leading to eye problems present from birth also called a congenital problem.  Many years down the road, we may be able to use gene therepy to correct a few of these problems, but if the retina is very damaged your future might include some type of artifical retina (like a computer chip) that is in development at the University of Southern California.  Check the following link about the artificial retina project.

God bless you and I hope maybe someday this technology may be able to benefit you.
