Can Dead Eye Nerves Be Cured?
excuse me, I’m 22 years old now. Two years ago I underwent juvenile cataract eye surgery. After surgery, my doctor said that my eyes would not see clearly because my eye nerves were dead and could not heal. Does the eye nerve die, is there a cure?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
If you have juvenile cataracts, then you may have experienced vision problems since you were very small when your eyes were still developing. The existence of visual disturbances since childhood like this will cause the stimulation received by the eye is not too good so that eye development becomes impaired. This condition is also called amblyopia or lazy eye. Looking at your history, it is likely that your eye doctor is referring to this amblyopia condition.
Generally amblyopia occurs in one eye only, but it is not impossible to occur in two eyes as well. Amblyopia not only affects the development of the eye, but also the development of the brain that regulates vision. If amblyopia is diagnosed since childhood, then therapy can be given (such as the use of eye patches), but if it is only discovered in adulthood, then no therapy can be done because eye development has also stopped.
In a case like you, chances are there really isn't much you can do, only correction can be done with glasses as much as possible, but it is likely that vision problems will not be truly corrected.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
