I actually have toxoplasmosis of my right retina in my eye. I was the youngest male documented case in the united states back in 1983. Emory
university used experimental technology for my case back in the day.
Basically, I lived in a 115 yr old house that we were remodeling, and the docs said I contracted it from the old insulation in the walls.
When I was in kindergarten, I noticed spots , or floaters in my eye. Got to a point where I had to cover my eye too see decent at all. After a dozen
tests, and weekly blood work, it was determined to be toxoplasmosis of my retina. They treated with steroids for a year, and it went dormant. I
haven't had a flare up of it in about ten years....but was a week away, according to doctors, to losing that eye.
