Glaucoma, Cataracts, and My Eye Health

I had my eye checkup this morning with my good friend Dr. Ronald Sevigny. Checkup was good. Eye pressure in both eyes was at 12. Doctor said that was very good. So the glaucoma is under control.

Can't See the Cataracts
Now the cataracts are another story. Still progressing in my right eye. Luckily its going slow. Not like the first time for the left eye. Had that surgery two and a half years ago. And it enabled me to pass my drivers test without corrective lenses for the first time in my life.

Now its time to get the right eye operated on. I will be happy to have that one done. Be nice to have a matching set of eyes again. Get my depth perception back and won't need glasses except for close up work. Reading glasses maybe.

I wish I would have known how important it was to take care of my eyes at an earlier age. I have been eating more vegetables of late. And working at getting as many colors into the diet as possible.

I have always loved veggies, especially carrots. I suppose I did not eat enough of them at an early age. Was more into meat and carbohydrates. Good thing I have changed those habits.

Still eat more meat than necessary at times. But I am keeping away from carbs for the most part. I miss the donuts but being 27 pounds lighter feels good. I am hoping that the improved diet will improve my health, including the eyes. We will see.

Let me know if you are interested in further details relating to eye health. I will keep posting on my health and see how it goes. Have a great day all.
