The story of Charles Kretzler
My son is 2 year old. He was diagnosed with Coats disease in September 2021. He had an abnormal screening at his 1 year check up. We were referred to a pediatric ophthalmologist and after a trip to Cleveland Clinic to rule out retinoblastoma it was confirmed to be Stage 4 Coats Disease. My son has full retina detachment of his right eye. He has had several laser treatments. He has a cryotherapy treatment and also had a drainage surgery. We continue with laser treatment in hopes of saving his eyeball. Charles is a very resilient little boy he never lets Coats Disease stop him. He is always ready to take on an challenge that may come his way!
