    Eye Health

    I Know This Probably Not The Forum For This But Let Me Share An Experience With Benchresters And My Friends.
    For Several Months I Had Minor Problems With MY Right Eye. I Blame It On Allegeries, Pollen, Etc. Etc. Tried Washing Out, PILLS, Etc, Etc, Etc. Finally Went To Doctor Who Does MY Eye Glasses FOR CHECKUP AND To Get "stuff" Out Of My RIGHT Eye During THE Third Week Oct . VISIT ResultED IN A Two Minute Doctor Exam And Directions "put ThESE Drops In RIGHT EYE 4 Times A Day Till Gone And All Will Be Well" Three Weeks Later Drops All Gone Eye Seemed Better. THIRD Week Of November Eye Irrated, Blurry MaDe An Appointment With Real Eye Doctor FOR 23 DECEMBER. During A Trip To Dothan Al, ON 18 December 07 Eye Went Almost Blank. Stopped At Southeast Eye Center WHICH HAS 12 Excellent Eye Doctors - THEY SAY I HAVE Funal Infection May Loose Sight And Eye. Agressive Treatment Required. Started Treatement Got A Liitle Better- Had Reactions To Drugs- Referred To Cornea Specialist EVEN More Agressive Drug Treatment - For 10 Days Eye Steadly Improved After Thursday DOCTOR Visit And FRIDAY (11 JAN 08) Shooting House SeSSION (DEER SEASON) Was Willing To LIve With Vision. The Next Morning EVERYTHING ALL F--- UP. Could Not See My HaNd In Front Of My Face. Went Belly Up Resistant To Drug. Changed Drugs WITH 10 More Days Of No Vision. Emergency Cornea Transplant Last Nite 12 HOURS LATER I CAN NOW COUNT FINGERS ON MY HAND WITH POSSIBILITY OF IMPROVENT. I Now Have Chance To Save Eye And Some Vision THANKS TO GOD AND THREE PROFESSIONAL DOCTORS. Moral Of Story: If You Have An Irration Of The Eye That Does Not Go Away In A Few Days Get To Right Doctor Fast. If Drugs Do Not Heal Quickly, Steadly AND With No SETBACKS, Get Graft // Transplant Early Or Face Loss Of Eye And Or Sight. STORY COMMING FROM A 28 YEAR ARMY VET, MASTERS DEGREED, SOUTHERN , DUMB, HARD HEADED ,REDNECK.

    Proper Doc

    A Doctor of Opthalmology is the only one to go to.

    Jim

    Hope you heal up ok. I'm going to the doc next week to discuss a cornea transplant. What did they tell you about recovery time before you can shoot again ? My brother had one years ago and he was off work for 6 weeks.

    Everyone should see a real eye doctor every so often. Especially your kids.

    Jim

    So sorry to hear of your eye troubles I can only imagine how scary that must be. I sincerely hope that the doctors have got it right and will keep you in our prayers. Frankly though Scotty might be on to something there, a five nights of Gentleman Jack and Buddy Ross could have serious consequences!
    Seriously take care of yourself and look forward to shooting next to you soon.

    Great Post. Luckily my parents were not happy with the treatment my smalltown eye Dr was giving. They finally went took me to Charlotte to the Eye, Ear, Nose & Throat center. Long Story short, they saved my eye. I was 4 at the time, and still wear glasses. I'm legally blind without them, but with quality optics I still shoot. If I could afford a lense implant, I could throw away the glasses.

    I'm glad you got things handled in time.

    Pam's eyes have

    been bothering her for a week or two. She has no idea why. I will see that she reads this post. I hope you will continue to progress. Take good care of them.

    Use a Bausch and Lomb Eye moisturizer or another eye drop with
    Boric acid in its ingredients kills fungal infection externally.

    Could also be Viral or Bacterial Conjunctivitis.

    Hang in there BIg Jim. I had an eye complication in 1970. I let it go for too long fooling with an optometrist instead of a ophthalmologist. It cost me eyesight in one eye and partial loss in the other.
