Update on my vision problems

In the middle of October I made a post about how I started having some issues with my vision. I wanted to give an update on what is going on. I actually don't know all that much more because I am unable to go to the doctors about the problem. At first I thought maybe I had MEWDS or a temporary White Dot syndrome, but now I'm not so sure. We lost our insurance because we are simply too poor to afford it. Both my husband and I are both chronically ill, we receive no disability, compensation or any income coming in from the government or state, so we are between a rock and a hard place. We are too broke to really afford anything at the moment.

In my left eye I still have the same blind spot that I discussed before. It doesn't seem like it's gotten much bigger. The rest of my vision is doing ok in that eye. I get a lot of weird blue dots, flashes, lights and strangeness at all hours of the day, nonstop in both eyes. At night, I have a major light show going on. It's actually distracting at times...

Since I made that post, I am now having issues with my right eye as well. My natural blind spot seems to be enlarged and I have vision loss starting to arc up the side from the blind spot. I am missing some peripheral vision in my right eye as well ever since what I thought was a migraine. Maybe it wasn't...I don't know. In addition to that, I also have scattered blind spots and missing lines of vision too. As far as being able to see, I am doing pretty good! I do catch the glimpses of weird text or spots at certain times though. The blind spots are not dark and completely see through if that makes any sense? My brain is filling in the missing vision with my other eye. The brain is truly amazing! None of the spots are in my center vision so it has not disrupted reading or seeing faces.

I continue to pray for my eyes and seek healing in that area too. Jesus healed blind people in the Bible, so he's done this before and is the same today. I have faith and believe in his healing powers today. Just as I look to Jesus as my Savior, I also look to him as my healer.
Hebrews 13:8
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever.
Take care everyone.

Have your eyes improved? I wonder if it might be detox symptoms? I had a ton of detoxing through my eyes in the last year. I ended up discontinuing wearing contacts because of it and no longer wear eye makeup.

I saw your post on berries and quercetin which originally brought me to your blog. I've had bad reactions to red berries for a while now and am +/+ COMT and MAO A which might be why I'm having trouble with them.
