Dude....but I've never asked as well. I don't know his vision, but his hope for me was to do well for a long period of time on the meds I started using...and still am. For cure vision? I've never asked. he has been involved with treatment trials.
I go for appointments, get the feedback and suggestions, prescriptions. I have refused over 24 years? I am grateful I had him for the past 24 years rather that the other one who would have put me on pred from the beginning.
I'm sure I'd have been a spiteful beotch or dead by now.
But he retires at the end of this year....sucks for me. "Things" will either get worse, improve, or stay the same.....
