Maine,

Like most men, I tend to trivialize medical problems but that was foolish in the extreme. Thought I'd have to cut back on my shooting but the doc says it isn't a problem. The Marines I shoot with are all around my age or slightly younger and I'm lucky enough to be the only one who can still use iron sights on my Garands and M14's.

Just wanted to ask you on how long did your normal vision came back? And was it the same vision you had when you did not have the CSR?
Please let me know sir.
Thank you in advance.

God bless.
It took about 6 months for my vision to return to "normal" meaning as best as it can be. Every time an episode happens vision will degrade somewhat. It is hard to predict how much worse it will be.

Thank you sir for your reply.
I also had a medication for my anxiety and i found out every time i took the medication since it is only prescribe as needed, somewhat helps with the blurry eye.
Hope to mellow my stress so CSR will heal faster.
Again thank you and hope we CSR victims will all be healed.

God bless

I managed to make it through the most stressful years of my life (death of wife, change of long-term job, etc) without mine getting any worse. It hasn't gotten any better either. The central vision in my non-dominant eye is just about nil but the peripheral vision is still there - enough so that I don't feel 'one-eyed' like I do if I close that eye. It's been about 15 years since it hit me and I haven't noticed much change since then.

Hi sir,
Thank you for sharing your experience with CSR.
Now i see that everybody had different experience with CSR, i am positively thinking that l belong to the 90% to regain vision against this disease.
I think this is a case to case bases and depends on the body chemistry.

Keep Believin'

Hi,
Just wanted to update on my CSR.
I am happy to let everyone know that my right eye now is almost back to normal no more blurry on my center vision. Can see now when driving at night. But right eye's vision appear just a little bit smaller than the left eye. Hoping this will also be back to normal very soon. 
God bless.

Usually recovers. I get it now and again (my third time in the right eye). The second time I got it was the worst, right smack in the middle of working 50+ hours a week and getting my mba. Shit happens...rock on.
