I was at the eye hospital yesterday, not good news my eye condition has worsened and they have registered me as partially sighted. Much of the damage has been caused by brain damage over the years, strokes and TIA's,my brain surgery and epilepsy. The good news is that it may not get much worse but they will keep checking

    Oh @woodbine I had everything crossed that things would be getting better, I'm sorry to hear that.  I do hope things will not progress any further for your eyes.
