Scared of going blind?
« on: June 03, 2014, 10:40:22 AM »
I've recently gone to a optician to change my glasses and after the test for my eye degree, he was shocked and made me go to a clinic for a referral letter. I had a lazy eye and my eye degree had rapidly increased too fast. My dad (not helping) keeps saying that I would go blind because I never took care of myself and used the computer too much and because of this, I got really scared and even had a few attacks. I would really appreciate assurance from others and some advice

Without more information I can't say much more than do not jump to conclusions. Don't google either. Let your doctors do what doctors do.

Sometimes people tell us things to scare us or to make us change our behavior the way they think it should be. Try not to let those comments get to you.  They are not coming from your doctor and it doesn't mean it is true.   Let the doctor be the guide and tell you what is going on.  The what if's and worries aren't going to do you any good right now.  Hopefully your next appointment will give you some answers and then you can work the problem from there.  Good luck.

It's not what's in front of us that stops us.  It's what's inside that holds us back.
