• Is there any surgery for a myelinated retina?


    Question:

    Is there any surgery for a myelinated retina? If not, is there any hope for one in the future? My son has very little vision in his left eye and it wanders.


    Answer:

    Unfortunately, there is no surgery for a myelinated retina (a condition one is born with that causes lesions on the retina, the light sensitive tissue in the back of the eye). At this time, I am unaware of any ongoing research that would address this.
