@Lucytink  I am so sorry to hear of your eye problems.  I hope things turn out as well as can be expected.  It must be very scary!

@bananacreampieA friend of mine went through that. She had to see a retina doctor and they did a surgery on her eye by putting some kind of "buckle". I can't remember the word for it. She had several tears in her retina, and they decided that was best for her. That was a few years ago though, so they may have new procedures now. I hope all goes well for you.


A scleral buckle is for a retinal detachment, not a tear. Two very different animals.

Thank you for your kind words.  It's not so bad having just one usable eye.  I just have to keep a check on my good eye, and pray that stays healty.  Sending my best wishes to you!
