I went to the opticians today, as I hadn't been for a long time. I had a headache for 2 weeks before Christmas, since then I have started to have some difficulty seeing with my left eye. I have previously had a blood clot in it before, so I was worried about it. I needn't have been so scared though, to my relief it wasn't another blood clot, I had been suffering from eye strain and only needed my lens in my reading glasses changed and also i need glasses for driving or to see anything in the distance. I feel so relieved, but now I have to find the money to buy them and to find about a £1000 for a deposit for my new motability car. It's true what they say about expense everything comes together, however at least I'm not going blind again like last time that was so scary. I am going to make sure that I go more often to the opticians now.
