A year ago I was diagnosed with Eales syndrome (destruction of blood vessels in the eye). I was hospitalized and I was given treatment with Prednison, Edtamin – intravenous vitamin C. I made five laser photocoagulation, but each time vitriene and retinal hemorrhages relapsed. Doctors do not give me too many explanations about my illness. At every exit from the hospital  they wrote “improved” on the medical letter, but each time the hemorrhage repeated. I’m tired of beating the way to hospital. Thank you.

“Cum se poate vindeca definitiv sindromul Eales?”

In urma cu un an am fost diagnosticat cu sindromul Eales (distrugerea vaselor de sange la ochi). Am fost internat si mi s-a administrat tratament cu Prednison, Edtamin – intravenos, Vitamina C. Am facut de cinci ori fotocoagulare cu laser, dar de fiecare data hemoragiile retiniene si vitriene au recidivat. Medicii nu-mi dau prea multe explicatii despre boala mea. La fiecare externare imi scriu “ameliorat” pe scrisoarea medicala, dar de fiecare data hemoragia se repeta. M-am saturat sa tot bat drumul la spital. Va multumesc.

  1. Hello Alexandru, I am currently experiencing the same situation. I had my eyes lasered and injected already. I have also taken medications for TB however the bleeding is still recurring. I have consulted lots of retina specialist and they have different opinions regarding my condition. My first doctor told me to just continue with injecting my eyes. Second doctor told me that my eyes should be lasered all the way with some injections and lastly, third doctor told me to proceed with vitrectomy since injecting and lasering my eyes previously did not stop the bleeding.

    Now, i’ll be having my eyes checked again via fundus photography then i’ll be scheduled for another injection to prevent the bleeding.

    Having this said, i really appreciated you sharing your experiences regarding your condition. However i would like to know how are you doing right now? Maybe it would help both of us if we can share thoughts on this situation.

    Thank you so much
