My name is Roxanne. In April of 2020 I started to notice my eye sight was a little blurry. As the days went out, it got worse. It was hard for me to see that it effected my daily living. I went to the doctor and was told my diabetes was effecting my vision.
I had two have two surgeries. One to fix the damaged that was done. A second surgery to remove the oil that was put over my eye to keep it pushed back in place.
On new years day, I started to notice my vision in my left eye was getting blurry. Over the weekend while I was at work,I started to notice it was cloudy in my left eye. It made it almost imimpossible to do my work. I went to the doctor on January 6th and was told I have a hemorrhage in the back of my left eye and there is now blood around my eye. The blood is pushing on my eye and causing the blurry vision I've been experiencing.
Now I need a third surgery.
The surgery center called me and said due to new policies that started in 2021, they cannot schedule my third surgery because I have a current balance of $3500.
Ar this time I don't have a savings due to the past surgeries, being off work with no PTO, and even more recently a car accident I was in. 2020 was a very rough year for me and it seemed to have followed me into 2021.
If I can get my past due balances paid off, I can get scheduled for my next surgery. I am 30 years old and terrified of losing my eye sight.
