I have to start out with the positive. I did a lot better with the news than I would have even a couple weeks ago. I didn't over react, and I didn't turn to food to smother my worry in chocolate and sugar, or something deep fried. This is a huge improvement.
But it still sucks.
My eyesight has been getting crummier for a while now, and it was finally in the budget to get my eyes checked. I figured it was just that I needed a different prescription for my glasses.
Not exactly. Apparently I have keratocornus in my right eye . How it was explained to me is that I have a progressive degneration of the cornea of the eye which causes the cornea to become misshappen.
Good news is that it can be treated for a while with hard contacts.
Bad news is that my doctor hasn't ever seen an eye as bad as mine and told me i'm pretty well looking at having to have a corneal transplant or go blind in my right eye.
That was Friday.
now I get to go see the specialist and find out what he has to say. Fun times.
At least it explains the crummy vision and the freaky light sensitivity.
