Next day visit my right looked....

    Color blindness?

    I'm an 18 year old male and I've been having issues with colors for the last two years. I never had trouble before. When I was a kid i had taken color blindness tests and had no trouble, I saw everything. Around the age of 16 I started noticing I would get certain colors confused. Reds, greens and browns to be exact. When I was 17 I went to MEPS to enlist in the Army and there I failed 2 color blind tests very badly. The dot test I only got 1/14. I was given a lantern test and only got a....

    It’s a long story. You got time? I pray you do. August 2017, I tripped while hiking with my dogs Nibbler and Buddy at a local off leash county park. I was knocked out. Came to covered in blood and dirt. Pups panting hard. No one around to help. I made it home and laid down. I know, I know don’t lecture me. My husband came home six hours later and found me unresponsive. Emergency room fixes everything, right? Not so much. The “doctor” refused me an MRI or a CAT scan. He did not check my eyes. He sent....

    Cataract Cure Left to Rot - Humanity Abandoned

    The optical clarity of the natural human eye lens is maintained by the "chaperone" protein alpha-crystallin, which is one of the lens proteins. "Chaperone" means that the alpha crystallin de-aggregates the other lens proteins if they are in aggregation mode (cataract). In cataract, the "chaperone" activity of alpha-crystallin has been lost, either due to clumping of the alpha-crystallin itself, or to binding of the alpha-crystallin with so-called Advanced Glycation End....

    What is anterior synechiae od?

    I went to the eye doctor today for my yearly check up. She found what she called anterior synechiae od in my eye and is referring me to a specialist. She asked if I have pain in my eye or any trauma to it and I have had nothing. There was no sign of this my previous treatment either. So my main question is what is this? I have tried to Google it and really can't find anything on it. What should I expect at this appointment with a specialist and how is it treated? I am nervous. Thank you for your....
