Multiple Sclerosis, Vision Problems, and Glasses That Don't Work
Posted May 06 2009 1:29pm
What a long days this has been. I think my eyes are going to explode? OK, that's just a tad mellow dramatic, how about my eyes are bothering me? I think it's my glasses, not my eyes, I fell for do you want anti-glare on the lenses, it's no extra charge? Sure, anti-glare all around. I've only worn glasses for a year, went in to get readers, left with trifocals that I can't figure out, plus that anti-glare crap is wearing off, making it look like scratches on the lenses. After a year, now I'm aware I need them, and they don't work!
This actually isn't the first time I've worn glasses, twice before I got try out that look. Unusual to outgrow needing glasses you say? Not really, and I am apt to be rather unusual! The first time I wore specs was for a bad case of Strabismus, that's cross eyes to you lay people. I was 3, my loving family still makes reference to how goofy I looked, the memories of childhood. After that problem corrected, when I was like 13 or so, I watched my uncle using a welding torch without eye protection, burned my retinas or something along those lines. I'm not sure if it was the same uncle that shot me in the forehead with a BB gun or not?
I've had frequent bouts of optic neuritis, but not for a while. I need to have my eyes checked by someone who deals with MS club members, I'm not sure if there are other issues with vision I need to be aware of. I know double vision is possible, and I have to admit, I'm not sure what that means? When things are out of focus, things appear double, at least they do to me? Anyway, I went to a regular ophthalmologist, but he didn't have anything for me, except trifocals with an anti-glare coating!
