(It's an auto-immune disease) I have been told by 4 surgeons that I will likely lose "functional" vision at some point in the future. I don't have much choice in finding another doc like you did, as 4 of them have confirmed the diagnosis. The prospect of losing my vision eats away at me as I haven't really come to terms with it yet.

I am curious, was your vision loss due to an accident or disease?

Nonetheless, I am ecstatic for you and your outcome. Decided where your driving yet, and in what?
vision loss was due to a birth defect that finally decided to get worse when I hit 32.

Its not easy to come to terms with it, but I will tell you that The Iron and yoga helped me more than anything.

My docs name is Timothy Page out of Birmingham Michigan. I do know he travels all over the world performing complicated eye surgeries.

Good luck and if you ever need to chat with someone who knows what you are going through PM me.
