PostSubject: My Dad's eye   Tue Apr 29, 2008 12:14 pm

Years ago, my Dad was in a severe car accident. He was the passenger, and the driver fell asleep at the wheel. He was thrown through the windshield, and then pulled back in again. Because of that accident, he completely lost the vision in his left eye. So, of course, over the years, he's been very careful of his right eye. He went to the eye doctor today to get a field of vision screening, and they found a dark spot on his retina. They said that it's growing, but we don't know how quickly it's growing at this point. (Or even what it is for certain) They're going to do some more tests to see if it's something that is treatable.

So.....your prayers, as always, would be very much appreciated!

Wow Savannah, that's scary. I will definately remember your father. I know how he feels, I only have the use of one eye too and as I get older, the fear of losing what I have in the good eye is freightening.
Dad, we're here for you! Hugs to both of you and mom too.

Prayers for your Dad Savannah........my aunt has been having problems with her eyes, and you can see the look of fear on her face of losing sight completely. I pray the doctors find out what it is and slow it down or stop it completely. :alright:

Praying for your dad, Savannah. I hope they're able to do something to treat him and help him keep vision in his eye. That must be very scary for all of you.

There is alot they can do now to help the eyes. My aunt feel recently, she hit so hard that it thrust her eye forward and caused her eyeball to tear to whatever its attached to. I know....gross. Anyway, she had to hold her head down for 4-6 weeks (that is very hard on the shoulders) so as to not put presssure on the tear.
I will keep your Dad in my prayers...keep us posted.

After work today, I went with my Dad to the specialist to have his eye checked again, to see how things are going. Thankfully, there's been no change. The spot isn't growing any more, and they won't need to see him again for six months. They still aren't sure what the trouble is, but at least it isn't growing. Thanks again, everyone for praying.
