I had the scare of my lives last week. (and still have it, will explain that later.) I was on a working trip to Lahad Datu, Sabah and was waiting for the connecting flight to Lahad Datu from Kota Kinabalu at Kota Kinabalu International Airport (KKIA). As usual I would spend my 4 hours waiting time hanging at the McD outlet. Yes, because of the free wifi connection hehe.
I was busy tweeting, logging on Facebook, checking mails, looking at drawings and suddenly I noticed that something was wrong with my vision. I saw things in double, shadowy and a little bit blur. I looked closer at the netbook monitor and then looked at the texts of a novel I brought.
All the texts on the monitor and book were shadowy and a little bit blur. The texts expanded, became double and mashed up together. Hey this is kinda cool! So I thought. When I looked at things at a distance, also same thing happened. Double vision, shadowy and a little bit blur.
I didn’t think much of that, I thought probably I just had less sleep and bit tired from the partying the during the weekend. And I always rub my eyes due to the stupid allergic reaction that I have, which always leave me with itchy eyes and stuffy nose. But the next day I came back to Miri, the problem with my vision persisted. It was getting worst in the afternoon, I felt really uncomfortable and annoyed so I took the evening off and went to see the company panel doctor.
He said my left eye seems like was infected with a certain type of conjunctivitis which I forgot the term and my right eye no problem but couldn’t explain the problem with my vision so he put me for an appointment with a visiting eye specialist on the next day.
To cut it short, I went for the check up on the next day, with the eye specialist dropping all kind of funny liquids in my eyes and using all funny gadgets to peek into my eyes. Oopss did he see through my soul?? Eyes are the windows to the soul, to phrase a famous saying
The eye specialist also found no problem with my eyes. The words he used ‘no big problem’ (in Mandarin) which I instantly asked ‘means have ’small’ problem?’ and he laughed. “No, no problem at all. Are you diabetic? Do you have any family member with diabetes? One of the possible explanation for sudden change or deterioration of vision is diabetes”.
Which I replied ‘No. I don’t have any family member with diabetes. I just did a medical checkup last month and my sugar level is fine.” He then checked my medical checkup report and confirmed that. In the end, he just gave me 2 bottles of eye drop and asked me to use those, and come back if the problem persists.
The bad news is, yes it persists. Last night and this morning, it was okay in the sense it was getting better. But, after lunch time today, the blurness and double , shadowy vision came back. I’m typing this post with my new found vision. It’s kinda weird to do so LOL! In future if this continues, I may need to find an speech to text software for me to blog and I may need to ditch my Tweets, FB etc, probably spare you guys from reading the craps I wrote. I hear anyone sighing for relief?
I’m going to keep using the prescriptions and monitor the condition. Let’s hope it’s just a temporary thing, due to watching too much porn and reading too much craps on the internet. Told you it’s hazardous to do so.
I’ll just end this post with a song, I dedicate to myself. One of my all time favourite song, Puddle of Mudd - Blurry. You guys take care
