I Am In My Early 20s But My Eyesight Is As Bad Like That Of A 60 Year Old by Samneer: 6:07pm On Apr 27, 2015
Hello everyone, trust you good.

Guys, I don't know what's going wrong with me. I am in my early 20s but my eyesight is as bad as that of a 60 year old. I started using spectacle when I was in Secondary School. Though, then it looks odd to me; my dad was using glasses same as my mum. My dad stopped using it, professing that God has healed him by faith. My mum is still using it, probably she didn't have the kind of intensity of my dad's faith.

Before I was given the recommended glasses (that was about 7 years ago) I do see things that are near to me, but I couldn't see things afar. The Doctor then said it was short sightedness, and he told my parents something I do not understand. I went for another appointment two years later, and he examined me, and gave another glass.

I went there two years later, he examined me and gave me another glass. To my greatest surprise, my eyesight is worsening everyday. I often asked my younger sister and mum (who also has eye defect) to look at things I couldn't see without my glasses, and even mum would say she sees it without her glasses. My fear was confirmed when some weeks ago, I was seating at the gallery of my church and I asked a dear sister sitting beside me, if she could see the pastor without her glasses, and she said yes; I was like 'seriously'. She asked me if I could see the pastor without it. I answered no- she said it seems I am going blind. Blind? my greatest fear.

And truly, I notice from every indications that she's kind of right. I have never gone for eye surgery, but my next appointment is next year. I am afraid, I can't walk without my glasses, I can't even look at my monitor without my spectacle (cos I work almost 24/7 on system), I can't see faces of people 3 meters away from me not to talk of several meters away without my glasses. It has become a real phobia to me right now. Doctors in the house, please help a fellow here. What should I do? Should I consider eye surgery? Drugs? I want my eye sight corrected. Of course I believe in miracles but I need counselling. Please help me o. I am tired of using eye glasses.

I fear I am going blind

Be calm and wear your prescription lens all the time, that's the only chance you stand of your sight improving. Your refractive error could get worse if you don't wear your lens. And importantly, you need to see an ophthalmologist and not an optician.
BTW, do you have any other associated symptoms? Seeing double objects? Eye pain?

Someone with your eyesight should have regular eye appointments. As often as every 3-6months.

You just need to be under the care of an experienced opthalmologist and optician.

I know people with eyesight just as bad as yours + glaucoma and they are coping fine.

Are you based in Lagos? I can recommend one to you.

I really feel for you bruh. Talking from a scientific point of view and through deductions from your post. I am pretty sure that your eye problem is hereditary ,u got it from your parents, and with also the effect that environment has on genetics I think you r also a cause to the degeneration of ur sight, sorry to say, through the stressing of your eyes, the lenses when working wt ur system as u said, you also risk exposing your eye cells to ultraviolet rays emitted by ur computer monitor, uv rays cause blindness to people without genetic problems let alone persons who have inherited eye disorders. My advice is 1.That you should decrease d length of time u expose ur eyes to ur screen
2. Eat more vegetables especially ones containing antioxidants and vitamins eg carrots, onions, garlic,tomatoes. Take vitA supplements too vitA is retinol a component of the eye cells. Drink more water also n eat watery vegetables like cucumber, water melon this is necessary to replenish the fluids of the vitrous humor of eyes which act in refracting light into ur eyes. The antioxidants will work in neutralizing d effects of ROS(reactive oxygen species)generated due to the exposition of ur eyes to sun rays nd light and thereby protecting ur eyes. Make sure u rest ur eyes, don,t read in dim or too bright light. Eat a lot of proteins to develop ur eye muscles and also exercise your eye muscles by twitching ur eyes, this is to tone it 4 light accomodation.
3. Don't listen to anybody suggesting surgery for you cos u did not mention u have cattaract or any growth in ur eyes. What r u cutting out in the surgery anyway.
I wish you the best n pray that my suggestions will work for you

See an opthalmologist for your own good and don't rely on any herbal or natural remedy.

Thanks bro,

I was with my ophthalmologist some weeks back, and she also confirmed that there's anything like cataract in my eyes. She even said its getting better (according to the examinations she carried out on the eyes) Though the left eye has complications and the lens is stronger than that of the right hand side. She then recommended another glasses, with coat from rays, she also gave me some drugs and eye drops.
