Is the Doc right about my daughter?

Told that my daughters vision in one eye will always be very poor because the nerve did not fully form at birth.
Told nothing can be done to make her vision better.
Can the Doc be 100% right after an office exam or could he possibly have overlooked other reasons?
If he is right is any new treatment available that he might not be aware of?
I only wonder because his attitude is a little abrupt and hurried.

Would appreciate any opinions.

  • I dont know much about this but it seems the problem is the nerve and that the nerve will have to grow more.if your daughters under 10 years old maybe the nerve will grow until she is 18 and her sight may get better.if not then you could try stem cell
