I am sorry to hear about your eye injury. Eye injuries, while not usually life threatening, can be very frightening for most people. There are a number of causes for a loss of vision. Vision loss can be temporary in some cases, or permanent, and may only be partial or complete. The good news is that for many victims of vision loss, there are options for treatment, and research continues to lead to solutions for restoring vision. There are also aids that can help victims of vision loss live full lives without their vision.
Vision damage can be caused by several factors. In most cases, the cause is an injury to either the brain or the eye. Even if the eyes are functioning properly, if the brain is injured the brain injury could result in a loss of vision. If the vision loss is caused by an injury to the eye or brain, there may be options for treatment including therapy and surgery. Some research has shown promising new therapies using stem cells and other medical procedures to treat vision loss.
