Hi I am 28 yrs old and about 2 years ago I had a retinal tear causing my vision to become cloudy. I had the lazer treatment done and in about 2 months my vision was better. I have juvenile retinoschisis and my opthamologist said the tear was from eye strain. About 6 months later it happened again causing my vivion to be lost again. I had the lazer treatment and a few months later the fogginess cleared again. Since the 1st time this occured, about every 2 months almost to the day, just out of nowhere I will notice a bunch of new floaters and within 1 hour my vision will become so foggy i cant even see out on the eye. My family doctor even checked me for diabetes, that test being negative, my opthamologist has suggested that i have a Vitrectomy to remove scar tissue and the vitreous fluid. I think im all out of options and this is my last hope to try and prevent this from happening again, because it seems like as soon as my vision clears it happens again. I have tried homeopathic remedies as well as perscription drugs and nothing helps.. The hemmorage keeps reoccuring. Im up in the air about what to do because I have heard that about %18 of people who have Vitrectomy surgery have complications. My vision is 20/200 in both eyes but now with my one eye all foggy it makes it even harder tio see. I just dont want to end up worse than before. Can anyone give me a good site to check out about this surgery because I want to make sure im reading all of the right things and not some bogus information. From what ive seen it looks very painful and I know I wouldnt be able to watch them insert objects into my eye without going absolutley crazy.
Thank you soo much for your help.
