How I used to see

Here is a picture of how I used to see before my Vitrecotmy.  I do not believe it is always necessary to have a vitrectomy if you catch the disease early and can stop the neo-vascularization before it causes too much damage to your eye.  I however was not good about regular checkups, and now I am a huge proponent of going to see an optometrist even if you have perfect vision, no matter what your age.  Whether you have Eale’s disease or not…. it can’t hurt visit with your optometrist on a regular basis.
