Freshmen football and the vision impaired

This sounds distressful for you. Is there anything that can be done medically about your vision, sdsurfin? My eyesight without corrective lenses is somewhere in the 20/300 range and I know I would feel lost without them. Without my glasses, big places can actually feel frightening and I sure couldn't drive safely. Not being able to see clearly has to be difficult on you. :( Does your doctor offer any hope?

Nearsightedness and astigmatisms are fairly common and are often genetic. Nerve issues in your eye might mean something else, though. All 3 of my children wear corrective lenses as well. All of us have 20/20 vision with glasses. So am I understanding correctly that you wear glasses, but you still only see 20/80? Would it be possible for you to see a specialist or ophthalmologist now? Maybe there is something the doctor can do to help? Even if the doctor can't help correct your vision, perhaps having a specific diagnosis would offer you a better understanding of your condition.

Take care.
