What to do if I'm 46 yo with pathologic myopia. recently my prescription jumped from -17 to -20! can any treatment stop/reverse it?

Not useful: Lattice is an area of weakness but not an actual detachment. Laser would add some extra stress in the area but is unlikely to prevent detachment. The actual incidence of detachment in the presence of lattice is no known as most cases of lattice are not detected and therefore the percentage that go on to detachment is just a guess. ...Read more
