Eyeball Update

Well, we all know I'm weird, right?
Well the doctor seems to think that I'm ultra-sensitive when my prescription varies even a little bit. He said most people wouldn't have noticed the slight difference... BUT the main thing is that I now have Adies (spelling fixes..sounds like aid ies) in both eyes.
If you have never heard of it you can read about it HERE.
It's a disease that they don't know anything about. They don't know why you get it..how you get it or how to cure it. I have dilated pupils ALL the time. I'm sensitive to light...and it made me go from 20/20 to being nearsighted. There is no treatment but to treat the symptoms.
The doctors all get a little excited, since they don't see it very often. AND now I'm part of the 10-12% that have it in both eyes.. Yeah Me!

So I'll live..and no Grandy..no patch...I know you were hoping.

OK..King Jack wants to play and American Idol starts soon.. Yeah Neil Diamond!

I wouldn't want to be the one to make the doctors go "Hmmm . . ."

Hope they figure out what do to about it soon!

It's called Aides? That's super weird. I have never ever heard of it.

aw, eye patches are sexy...and piratey.

Next time you're there, could you ask if theres anything I can do to get rid of the floaties in my eyes?

Glad you're feeling better! You can't miss Cardinals Day tomorrow.

I'm very light sensitive. What did you think about AI tonight?

Connie said...

So sorry to hear about your eyes! Will it get worse? Scary!

Amanda said...

I'm very sensitive to light as well. I have horrible eye sight. I know how that goes. Hopefully it doesn't get any worse, and only gets better from here!

*Wasn't overly excited about Idol last night. This season is starting to fall apart for me.

I'm glad it wasn't more serious. I'm not glad it's as serious as it is, and is a total drag.

I would never suggest that having two eyes with this condition is a good thing, but maybe now that both of them have it, some things might be easier or less stressful on your brain. -Not having to make adjustments for two different types of eyes etc.
