Nerve injury: As a surgeon, i repaired many transsected nerves. Without a surgical repair, there is little chance that the nerve will recover function. With a repair performed by an experienced microsurgeon, the odds are very good (depending on the extent and cause of trans-section) that there will be a significant recovery of function. ...Read more

How should i cure myself of peripheral vision loss.I am 78 years old and 10 yrs ago , i had both my eyes operated for cataract by the lasik laser .?
Peripheral: There are several reasons for peripheral vision loss-- they include glaucoma, retinal diseases, trauma, and cataract surgery. The implant placed inside the eye is smaller in diameter than the cataract. Thus, the effective viewing area is smaller, and the peripheral vision is reduced. Glaucoma is treated with eye drops, laser, or surgery. Retinal diseases are treated depending on the cause... ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Dr says glaucoma caught early w/30% nerve damage & minimal peripheral vision loss. Begun treatment. Only 58 yrs. Old. What is long-term prognosis?
Dr says glaucoma caught early w/30% nerve damage & some peripheral vision loss. Said w/out treatment could've been blind in 7 yrs. Can go that fast?
Depends: It depends on many factors, but the general rule of thumb is that it the higher the pressure, the faster vision loss can occur. The goal of glaucoma treatment is to lower the pressure to the point that vision loss does not progress or slows to the point that you will never go blind during your lifetime. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Recently diagnosed with glaucoma. No peripheral vision loss. 30% optic nerve damage. With treatment will nerve damage cause loss of vision?
Probably not: Glaucoma is readily treated with anti-pressure medication which should prevent any further damage in almost all cases. This is handled by ophthalmologists (you are not seeing an optometrist i hope?) who deal with this daily. There is a step ladder of treatments -- medication, laser, surgery to prevent further damage which can be quite effective. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

You need to immediately see an ophthalmologist for this as some of these are extremely urgent and can affect both eyes. ...Read more
