Eye doctor that is, so nothing life threatening here. I usually don't post much personal stuff like this as everyone has their cross to bear and mine are pretty light compared to a lot of people, but I do have to say it's weighing on me a little at the moment. I really don't have that bad of vision, just slight nearsightedness and nocturnal myopia. I wear eyeglasses as needed for things such as mainly driving at night or watching TV and I also am very sensitive to sunlight and glare and pretty much wear prescription sunglasses anytime I'm outside. Went for my checkup that was a little overdue and got a new prescription and frames. I splurged a little and have some pretty cool looking Oakleys coming now! As of late I have been having really blurry, cloudy vision in the left eye and often it feels extra itchy and irritated. Anyway; about 30 years ago I was diagnosed with an eye condition called Krukenburg's Spindle with Pigmentary Dispersion Syndrome. A lot of words which basically mean I have little pieces of pigments coming off my irises that float around inside my eyes and lead to elevated pressures inside. Because of this I have checkups pretty much at regular 6 month intervals and for 30 years it hasn't progressed. Until today. Checkup revealed the pressures in my eyes are way up, the amount of pigment floating around is up and I now seem to be at risk of damage occuring to the optical nerve in my left eye. The Dr. has referred me to a glaucoma specialist that I'll see in 2 weeks. Not real devastating news, but unnerving nonetheless. My grandfather on my Mom's side went blind with glaucoma in his late 50s and I also had a great uncle I never met that had glaucoma also, so I apparently got that gene. Bummer. My understanding is that with medical breakthroughs today I pretty much won't end up going blind as they did fortunately, but I'll end up on some kind of meds or eyedrops for the rest of my life I suppose. Anyway, sorry to be whiney, just wondering if any of you guys out there have similar issues or diagnoses and how yours is handled and your experiences with it. Thanks!
