Eyesight

A bit OT perhaps but if you can't see, you can't covert......Easily.

My right retina detached in early '13. have had numerous surgeries but eyesight is minimal.

The eye battle continues.

My good eye is crapping out now. Had an eval. and the retina has had a "stroke" Doc. gave me an injection (yes, in the eye) and TU I go for a laser treatment.

Every month I get another injection, who knows how long this will last.

If I advertise for a dog, you'll know things went south.

Hang in there. Hopefully it lasts long and keeps you going.

I have a friend who's going through something very similar. He's getting injections too.
Wishing all the best for you, Don!

Take care of those eyes out there.

Hang in there pardner and best of luck. I had a detachment problem several years back but it sorted itself out on its' own in a couple of years and is OK now. Here's hoping you have similar results.
