QUESTION: Thank you Doctor for your timely advice. Apart from Lasik, my major concern for him is, inspite of regular checkups will there be a worse scenario of permanent loss of eye sight in future if such retinal problem persists as he is a bright student and in a growing up stage?  Has there been any such cases ?
