I called and asked my best male friend if he would be willing to speak with you about AION. Also, I thought he could recommend the doctor that he sees here in Phoenix. She's one of the best in the country. He said, absolutely. He'd love to help.
If you want to send me a private email with your phone number. He would like to speak with you over the telephone If that's OK with you.
You can go to the Ask and or Share section with Michelle on the homepage and post your number. Nobody looks at those but me. I promise he's a great man and neither one of us will share your number with another soul.
Thanks so much. I hope this helps.
Best in health,

I have so much to tell you about AION. I'm going to get you some information on this condition and see if I can get my best male friend to come share his story with you.
He knows more about this condition then anyone. There is a great doctor here that he loves. She's been treating him for years. She's considered one of the leading experts.
Don't know if there are any new treatments. I will check with them to let you know.
Best in health,

I had to search for an explanation in "plain" English:
Anterior ischemic optic neuropathy is a medical condition involving loss of vision due to damage to the optic nerve from insufficient blood supply. AION is generally divided into two types: arteritic AION (or AAION) and non-arteritic AION (NAION or simply AION).
Apparently, this condition affects primarily older patients age 50+. Symptoms

The articles I found mentioned possible treatment and surgery, with the hope of preventing the sudden blindness in the good eye. But, I didn't see anything about a cure. Perhaps one of our medical experts can answer this question for you.June 12, 2008 - 7:26pm
