I turned 58 in July and then a few weeks later I found out I had glaucoma and lost some of my sight in the center of both eyes. Being an artist this was not easy to learn. I have been a healthy person most of my life and am not use to having heath issues.
God is very loving and gracious. I was doing jewelry design for about 10 years but a few years ago I decided to go back to my roots and started painting and making less jewelry. Being a abstract mixed media artist I can still paint even with the loss of some of my eyesight. I have given up making jewelry but not my passion for creating art.
I just went back for a checkup on my eyes. In 6 months I have lost more sight and found out I have cataracts on top of the glaucoma. It was a shock and scary but I know God has a plan, therefore I will trust and not fear.
I have decided to try healthy alternatives to see if this will improve my eyesight. I am trying smoothies that are suppose to help with eyesight.
Today is day one in this journey. I just made my first smoothie. It actually does not taste bad. The recipe called for coconut milk and I used almond milk instead.
I will keep you updated on how this goes. If you have any suggestions or know of something natural that has helped to improve your eyesight I would love to know.
