Hello doctor,

I am a 24 year old male. My left eye was damaged in an accident when I was 7 years old. Can any procedure possibly be done now? I did not go for any check-up previously.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have gone through the picture (attachment removed to protect patient identity).

  • It is a phthisical eye. For cosmetic reasons, you can go for an artificial prosthetic eye.
  • If the vision is lost, nothing can be done now.
  • Send high-quality pictures of your eyes for better assessment and treatment.

Do follow-up for any queries.
