Young retina patients A SHOUT OUT &//

Posted , 2 users are following.

Hey everyone, this is just a shout out to all the young patients with retinal issues.

You have a long life journey ahead, with what you are going through, you may be scared.

I know what you’re going through and I know that many people can’t relate to you or try to be helpful-- with unhelpful stories of their elderly relative with a retinal detachment.

I am a high functioning Mac-off left eye detachee and want to help people cope, as well as swap stories about experiences.

I encourage all to seek advice from an Ophthalmologist not just an Optician (great for dispensing eyewear but please seek advice from a surgeon instead!) especially one whom specializes in retina / vitreous disease.
