My husband has the same problem like you. And he wears hard contact lenses that act like a bra for the cornea. in that way he can see better.
I have to visit the ophthalmologist too because I see worse.
I like very much your photos

Thank you Monysasi. I like the "bra for cornea" - clearly describes the purpose :) (by the way, that would by interesting name for the product ;) )

Thanks for the story and warning. That contact lens photo kind of creeps me out, though :)

just do not postpone it like I did years ago :) Choosing a date and picking up a phone is really easy thing to do and should take no longer than 5-10 minutes - and you can do it right now :)

@ Bradcalkins: when I saw the image I was like "No way - somebody has a spare eye!"... so I had to use it :)

Excellent advice and as you said, I feel your sight is one of the most important things in life, especially for a photographer. I was diagnosed with glaucoma a couple of years ago and luckily it was in its very early stages and I am able to maintain my eye pressure with drops to reduce the potential for damage to the optic nerve. Please take this advice.

@ Iwhitwo, thanks for adding your comment - good that the things are under control with your eyes. Maybe you should add how to "diagnose" it - was there something that felt different than usual, something that can tell person, that this glaucoma might be his problem?

@ Alvera :) - were you looking with one, two or three eyes? - oh, wait a minute...

@ Janceluch, there is nothing that you can tell yourself in the early stages until the optic nerve starts to be damaged from the constant high pressure in the eye. The result is that you start to lose your peripheral vision first until if untreated you eventually go blind. There is a very simple test that can be done by your eye doctor that measures the pressure in your eyes and if it comes back high, you will be directed to an eye specialist for proper diagnosis and treatment. There are also tests your eye doctor can do to check your peripheral vision that involve you looking into a piece of equipment that you stare straight ahead and then click a button when when you see pinpoint flashes of light all around your field of vision. In short, be sure to get regular eye check ups and be safe.
