Ahoy Matey!!

Lately I have been having a lot of problems with my vision being blurry.  As I have said before, often it seems like I am looking through plastic wrap.  The optometrist changed my computer glasses, but the reading ones I have just do not work for very long.  The more I try to focus, the more unfocused I seem to become.  Therefore, I really don’t read much anymore.

I have an MS friend who wears an eye patch.  He is practically blind in that eye and it hurts to be exposed to the lights and elements.  He has put several pictures of the different ones he has online.  Some are really cute.

My eyes hurt a lot.  Usually it is one eye that pounds in pain, but sometimes both of them do.  I am wondering if an eye patch might help during those times.  Maybe if the eye that hurts is cut off from its surroundings it might feel better.  Just a thought……….

Like with most things that come up, I wonder if there are things already “out there” to help with the problem.  I am presently looking at all the eye patches on the market.  Most are basic black in different shapes.  There are some really cute ones for kids.  I am not sure I have found the one that I might want in the future.

As with all things medical, I would have to discuss this in depth with my optometrist.  He is a really nice guy and does not mind trying to answer any questions I come up with.  I am sure he would get a kick out of the eye patch question.  He might even want one for himself.  It would have to be UNC blue I am sure!

I was thinking that if I do have to buy a patch one day, I could get a pirate one.  I even have a bird (Hadji) to go with it.

I was looking just now and I think I have really found the one I like.  Peacock feathers anyone??!!!

I'm so sorry your eyes give you so much trouble. If you get the patch, I want some pics here!
