Woman with Rare Eye Disease Regains Her Sight Thanks to Doctors

Posted on March 26th, 2012 by

Imagine being told you have a rare eye disease that could leave you blind, and there's no cure. That's what had happened to one woman three years ago when News 3 first talked to her. But she said medical treatment has worked a miracle…The white portion of my eye was thinning down to a layer where it could turn into a hole, and I would've went blind," she said. That's when she turned to the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville. Dr. Andy Abril, who works in the Mayo Clinic's rheumatology department, said scleritis typically happens in rheumatoid arthritis patients.
