I'm happy for you, and the doc who was willing to try something else! I can relate, because this time last year, I was also legally blind. best corrected vision in both eyes was around 20/100. Went to an eye doc after all the stroke surgeries were over, and found out I had cateracts. No insurance and a 4000.00 surgery. My doc jumped on it, and contacted The Council Of The Blind. This wonderful agency paid for my eye surgeries, all follow up visits, and my glasses. I now see 20/20 in both eyes!
The lesson here from myself and Rapaire I think is find a health care professional that is willing to go that extra mile to help you in your recovery. It can make all the difference!
