I have a problem with vision, I have been diagnosed with 6 nerve neurapthy. vision is terrible. Went to Opthomologist yesterday and says I may get good vision in a few weeks to months. Is there anything that can be done to expidite this process and do I need to get a patch for the left eye that is damaged?
