Last week I went to have my eyes checked and had got a scare.After seemingly routine checks,The Doctor found that I may have Glaucoma,though only the beginning stage.So I should come back two days later for a check-up with the Glaucoma-Specialist.Two days were spent,being unable to read anything less than the 150%magnified typo.[due to the dilatation of the eyes ]So stitching/knitting were ruled out.Anyway,Istarted takuing some homeopathic Remedies for the sympyoms and discomfort I had.When I went for my Periferral Vision Test and checkup on Saturday,the results came out normal.So I felt very much relieved.It turns out the blurring and difficulty with threading needles that I experienced were due to the fact I now need specs to help with the near-vision apart from the usual one for distance vision .
Friends,the past few days really shook me up.because of the things I learned about glaucoma.It cannot be cured but can be contolled.[at least in allopathy].There will be permanent loss of vision due to the increased pressure in the eyes.
PS. I have now found that my eye-ball is so shaped as to make the doctor think I might have glaucoma;but it isn't,thankfully! I had a second check-up recently when the good doctor explained it all !
