Question
eye certificate
eye certificate  
hello
i have 6/60 vision in both eyes from birth .
i want to improve my vision coz i want to be normal can any surgery or transplant help me ?

Answer
Dear Mustakim,
If this vision loss is due to some optic nerve damage or retinal issue, then unfortunately, what is affected is the vision giving apparatus. No transplant will help. Eye transplant is restricted to cornea transplant and only helps if loss of vision is due to corneal opacity where a graft is required.The report attached states Albinism, which affects the retina.
