My name is Grace. Last year my boyfriend had a seizure caused by an AVM in his brain. The doctors had planned to remove it in a month or so but unfortunately it hemorrhaged before that and needed emergency brain surgery to remove the AVM and save his life. He lost his peripheral vision on the left side of both his eyes and made his vision blurrier in his left eye.
Since then he’s adjusted quite well. He still pursuing his passion for photography and sometimes it feels like he never lost and of his vision at all. The doctors said that because of his age (22) there’s a good chance that some of his vision may be recovered. He’s still sometimes get worried that his vision is getting worse, but he can’t really tell if it actually is or if he’s just psyching himself out.
Has anyone who’s had vision loss been able to recovered their vision over time? Is the damage permanent, improve or worsen over time?
All responses are appreciated! Thank you!
