Customer Question

About 15 years ago, I was diagnosed with 'Bird-shot' in both eyes. My right eye recovered to an acceptable level of sight. However, my left eye has only peripheral sight - I understand that the Bird-shot has damaged the macular of that eye. Is there any recent surgical progress which might enable my macular to be regenerated?
