  • I just did a little search to learn what toxoplasmosis is. Sounds like your immune system is not working up to par. From what I read your immune system should have fought off the parasite. So I would do things to help your immune system. You might also want to increase your Vit. A intake (know someone who had a chronic eye infection that would not go away with medication but was cured by large doses of Vit. A). Also take other supplements for eye health. Sorry, since I never heard of this disease, can't tell you where to go for help. Have you tried searching the internet for help?

  • Hai, thanx for your responce! They can not make my eyes better with some vit. A, there is too much damage inside and here in Holland the can't do anything about it. Maybe the only solution can be to transplant a new eye(is my idea), only they don't do that in this country and i don't know if that is possible! Can they do that in your country, do you know that? 24 ours, 7 days a week i'm thinking about it and try to find something to get my sight back! Thanks again for your responce! grtz Angelique

  • I can understand you.I am in the same situation like you.I will be very eager to know if you find some treatments or some other solutions. At this time ,for me there are no solutions.Thanks.......I will be 75 in Oct and was born with an active case of toxo...legally blind in one eye and a lot of damage in the other. Read everything you can on toxoplasmosis AND latent toxoplasmosis. This is a serious disease that can affect your entire body. Then do your best to find a good infectious disease specialist, your best bet will probably be someone that is young and will be excited about helping you. Pray for me and I will pray for all of you.

  • i had it as a kid n my eyes they can diagnose it after the fact. it leaves pretty bad scarring in the eyes i have scarring in both eyes. usually your immune system can fight it and you never get sick. theyres no way to fix the damage. glasses help it from the damage of the eyes you can get other problems like i have issues with the focusing mechanism in my eye that works unfortunately you can go blind . i lost a eye to toxy. hope this helps
