I have a hemi Retinol occlusion. I do not want to have injections. Can I take any medication for it. Can the eye repair itself?

Injections are to prevent abnormal vessels from growing which can threaten the rest of the retina. Before the injections there was no realistic treatment. It is your choice to decline them or not. ...Read more

Can someone tell me how to repair spinal/nerve tissue damage due to drug abuse?

Can someone tell me how to repair spinal/nerve tissue damage due to drug abuse?
