*turnz awf lolspeek*
I was born with a condition called congenital rubella syndrome. I was luckier than most and only suffer from visual problems (it could be much worse, from brain problems to deformities and death). I have no vision in my left eye, and to save my right eye they had to remove the lens when I was still a baby, so I have had to wear thick glasses and more recently also super strong contact lens in order to see things properly. Other than having problems with depth perception and balance et al, I haven’t really had any problems. However, for the last year and a half, I have noticed an increase in foggy vision (it started with once a month, but now it happens about 4 times a week). At first we thought it was due to the contact lens being older than a year, so 3 weeks ago I got a new lens, but earlier this week I clicked that I’m wearing the new lens and my vision is still going foggy 3-4 days a week. I spoke to my optomotrist, who worried that it might be due to swelling of the cornea and asked that I come in when it happens again. So, Friday morning it happened again and I went in and they checked my eye – yes, the cornea was swollen, but (!) there are also blisters on the cornea. I was then squeezed in for an appointment with my eye specialist and rushed right over. The specialist had a look and confirmed that my cornea wasn’t well and that the blisters were like water blisters, but he had trouble checking my eye pressure and couldn’t give me any answers really until he had confirmed a few things. So, he has sent me to the eye centre on this coming Monday for a specular microscopy scan (endothelial cell count) or something like that, which means he wants to see if my eye is deteriorating.
*sigh* I know I shouldn’t worry about things I can’t change, but this could (maybe) majorly effect my life, and I’m just scared.
