If there’s one thing I don’t take for granted, it’s my vision.
Seriously now, is there anyone out there who wants to lose their sight? I don’t think so. Especially with 50 Shades of Grey being made into a movie… potentially starring Ian Somerhalder. I NEED to see that, please!

For me, I’ve got a little something called glaucoma working against me. Having a very strong family history of the disease, I was diagnosed with high intraocular pressure (IOP) at just 14 years old. Hence, I’ve had to undergo visual field tests once a year for the past twenty years. My last test results suggested that I had a *small* blindspot on my upper left side, but thankfully, no therapy has been indicated just yet. Kind of sucks that I have to dance around a condition that normally affects seniors, but I’m eternally grateful for preventative medicine and technology.
Did you know that many types of vision loss are preventable? It’s true – and with May being Vision Health Month, the CNIB is challenging Canadians to take action to maintain their vision health so that we can eliminate avoidable sight loss in Canada….
