Damage to optic nerve is 30 percent. With treatment how likely is it that in the future i will notice loss of peripheral vision in my sight?

If a surgeon can realign the eyes surgically, is it possible the brain will fix residual problems between the two eyes? I'm looking at a 2nd surgery.
Get 2nd opinion: If you've had strabismus surgery already, and there are still double vision uncorrected by glasses with prisms, then you need a second opinion before undergoing another surgery.In children, it's easier for the brain to self correct after strabismus surgery, more than adults. However, there's been some success with Botox used in kids in place of surgery. See if that's an option 4 u r not as a thot. ...Read more

I've been diagnosed with mild symptoms of glaucoma. As there a natural way to cure this and get rid of permanent vision loss?
Chronic Condition: Glaucoma is a chronic medical condition that needs to be monitored and followed on a regular basis.

Will there be a sensation (pressure, aches, tingling, etc...) in the eyeball after cataract surgery has healed?
Not likely: Vision loss implies a decrease in the eye's ability to record an image and/or send the image to the brain. Most causes of vision loss require medical or surgical treatment, or both. One of the few causes of vision loss that can be reversed without surgery is refractive amblyopia (lazy eye due to an uncorrected need fro glasses). If treated at a young age, it can be nonsurgically reversed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Is there a way of preventing a brain tumor after years of heavy mobile phone use or will the damage already be done?
Unclear: Most of the studies linking cell phone use with brain tumors are poor studies and the current stand of both neurosurgery associations is that there is not enough data to suggest there is a link between cell phone use and brain tumor. If there is such a link, then decreasing your use may improve your chances but again, i suspect there is not direct causative link between cell phone use and tumors. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
