Over the last couple of years "Will" sight has been worsening. He has gone from no glasses, to reading glasses, to prescription glasses that are not helping. This has been difficult for him, because after learning to read, he fell in love with reading so much he even read instruction and that's something men don't do. Lol. He also loved photography and was very good at it, these were his hobbies that he can no longer do and miss dearly. This has affected his way of life, with such things as work performance, driving, spending time with family and our children of five (the youngest son being five years of age) and grandchildren of two with one on the way in couple of weeks.
We most recently received the news that "Will" eye sight is deteriorating. You see "Will" was born with a rare birth defect disease called Embryotoxon (pupil deformity). The Doctors says that it is a miracle that he could see at any point in his life. To add to it he has, Cataract Disease, Corneal Disease, Fuchs Dystrophy Disease, Dry Eye Disease, Blepharitis Squamous and is a Glaucoma suspect.
The Doctor's are saying that he must have Cataract Surgery, Corneal Surgery, Lens Implants and Pupilloplastic Surgery as soon as possible. The insurance will not pay for the recommended procedures. The first of two has been scheduled for August 24th, the second around September 7th. The cost for them must be paid in full ten days prior to surgery. We're praying that it doesn't have to be delayed much longer.
Please help us reach our goal to regain my husbands full sight back.
