My sister works for my ophthalmologist.. I ask all the time if they could just pop my eye out and be done with it..I also have tried cover my eye, but sometimes that is worse. I have also rodeo'd my entire life, barrel racing, I am struggling with that now also as I have zero depth perception. have any of you done the radiation treatments? That is what they are thinking of next. My next appt is the end of June, so I guess we will see. Thank you for sharing with me. It does help knowing that others understand what I am going through.

Im so glad I found this site.. I haven't had anyone around here that has had the problems that I do. They just dont understand. After trying to work this last week, Im a nail technician, I almost decided that there isn't anyway to keep doing that. After a day of trying to see where to place the brush, my headaches are horrible. So disappointed that the removal of this didn't help with my vision and somedays I think it is getting worse. I to am trying to stay positive and I know its only been a short time. But, this is really starting to work on me. Thanks for listening/reading.

This was my first operation. My surgeon said he wouldn't go back in again. My surgery was done in Murray UT. Now we are planning on radiation that will last 6 weeks, 5 days a week. I am having MRI's every 3 months.This has been a crazy journey. Im sad that my vision didn't change with this surgery and am doing all I can to stay positive..

I recently, Feb 12, had surgery to remove meningioma from optic nerve on my left side. I had lost most of my vision in that eye. No peripheral vision or depth perception. I was hoping after surgery to get some of that back. I do nails for a living and still can not see like I would like to. If anyone has had something similar to this and got their vision back. I would love to hear about it.
