I've got a Macular Oedema in my left eye, which appeared last year. For about 6 months the vision in my left eye was entirely blurry, but recently it has 'stabilised' and now my vision in that eye is quite normal, if you can ignore the honking great blind spot (I can still see fine out of it, but sometimes have to move my head about to see things that fall into the blind spot).

I'm quite lucky in that I can still drive and lead a normal life right now. I live in constant fear that it will get worse or start affecting the other eye.

Worse thing is, I'm only 21 - and the doctors and nurses of the NHS so far seem to have no idea why it happened.

Eye problems NFTW.

Don't worry, the good thing is most treatments for eye conditions are advancing quickly. Mine, being genetic, depends upon stem cells for any kind of hope really, but I'm still hoping. Keep on at them. Hospitals don't pay enough attention to these kinds of conditions, don't let them discharge you. Even with an incurable condition such as mine, I still insist on yearly progress check-ups just to see how things are going. That's saved me one retinal detachment and a cataract so far... They wouldn't have been found without those checkups. So BUG THEM TO KEEP LOOKING! Good luck sweets
