No driving for a while.
« on: 10 October 2017, 17:44:47 »

Not been on here much over the last couple of weeks had   trouble with my eyes , anyway saw my GP last Friday who was quite concerned & has arranged a brain scan (just hope they find one)😀 Also recommended an eye test which I had today.Good news nothing wrong at the front bad news is that the double vision I am experiencing is either brain related or a problem behind the eye, advice is not to drive & more specialist referrals, so guys never take anything for granted , if there are any spelling mistakes I apologize because I am having to wear an eye patch.

Crikey. We do take our eyesight for granted.

Hope the experts can sort it out for you. :y

Jeez, that must be scary. I hope it turns out to be something that can be fixed.  :(

Hope you get better and there is nothing long term to worry about :)

As a diabetic I am very aware of the need not to damage my eyes, so go for regular check ups.  I also had double vision for a few days and couldn't drive three years ago, but after panicking it turned out to be hay fever affecting my vision temporarily.  Very scary, so I have some idea of what you are going through Tilbo.  Once again, hope it all clears up soon :y

Hope it turns out to be nothing serious, and is quickly sorted out

Wishing you all the very best on getting this 100% sorted. :y :y :y

A neighbour had a similar problem to you and hopefully it is the same as what they had was a benign growth behind their eye? Their eye was popped out, the growth removed and the eye popped back in all under local anesthetic with no major pain afterwards, which also totally cured the problem. :y :y :y

I wish you all the best on this being sorted as being permanently partially sighted like me causes many day-to-day issues, but you can only keep chin-up and fight hard for the best quality of life circumstances allows. What you learn is that disability makes your personal productivity much worse compared to totally being a fit people.

Viewing long distance I don't use an eye patch, but I do when reading, to stop my eyes and my brain's processing not fighting against each other and my bad eye squinting to try and cope with its limited vision. If you find you can't work out the image you eyes are giving, this is very unnerving but does get a bit better in time as you get used to it. ??? The other big problems I've found is that it reduces the light your eyes receive which makes low-level vision difficult to impossible, so I have torches around the house and also magnifying glasses to help in reading any small text especially on any packaging. :-[

  Hope it does turn out to be nothing serious mate. I do have a good friend who has lost total sight in his left eye and has extremely limited vision in the right. Also he has now had lower limb amputation on both legs to go along with the dialysis he has to have three times a week. We cant even begin to imagine how he copes but he is always cheery and gets on with it

Thanks everyone for your support, had a scare in 2000 when a tumour was suspected had various tests & got the all clear so kind of been through this before, now not really worried lots of folk worse off health-wise than me  no pain just blurry vision & a watery eye, make the most of my time off enjoy walking so wearing the dog out each morning for a couple of hours, just miss driving to the other walks I used to take him to.

Sorry to hear this, Mr Tilbo. :-\

Wishing you all the best. It is often the case that the apprehension is worse than the reality. :y
