Eye Injury – Scleral Shell

My son had a nasty eye injury on January 1st, 2010. After a seven hour surgery with the fantastic doctors at Mott’s University Hospital at University of Michigan, he still had his eye. After a retina surgery with Dr. Civantos at Illinois Retina Associates everything was looking good. Then along comes a little bacterial called strep pneumoniae to blow everything out of the water. The good thing, he’s a regular kid riding bicycles, running, jumping and playing video games. Reading is one of his favorite pastimes. Yes, he’s blind in one eye but he’s still just a regular kid.

At the time we were going through the scleral shell process, I couldn’t find much information so I decided to talk about it in my running blog. Here’s all the important posts you should read if you came here about eye injuries, eye infections or scleral shells.
