Hi. I am 42 years old and I was recently diagnosed with Retinal Pigment Epithelial Detachment. Is this a form of wet macular degeneration or are there other causes? Will RPED cause complete loss of central vision and what is the best treatment?
Hi and thanks for your message. I have two RPEDs in my right eye and one area of concern in my left eye. I have several chronic health conditions and I take several medications. Do you have difficulty seeing in low light situations? I have a hard time seeing when the light is low and when I drive at night. When I look only out of my right eye lines/images are distorted and darker. I also feel sick when I try to look only out of my right eye. Do you experience a sick feeling when you look only out of your left eye with the RPED? Take care.View Thread
Thank you for your message. Yes, I am seeing a retinal specialist. Can you direct me to some online resources that discuss retinal pigment epithelial detachment? Does it usually occur unilateral or bilateral? I find it very difficult to see with my right eye that has the detachment in low lighting. Is this "normal" for retinal pigment epithelial detachment? What causes (steroid medications, autoimmune diseases, heredity) retinal pigment epithelial detachment?
