Having Eye Surgery - Positive Thoughts & Prayers Needed!

Wed Aug 29, 2012 3:08 am

Hey, ya'll!

I'm fixing to take a BIG STEP in my journey towards independence from my Mom when I go for a consultation to correct what is termed, "lazy eye" on my left eye in the hopes that it will help my vision in that eye AND if it's successful..........I'm going to attempt to obtain my LEARNER'S driving permit (I actually failed the written test on the first try and just never went back to finish trying to get my driver's license) and, hopefully, obtain my actual driver's license which will give me some MUCH-NEEDED FREEDOM!

Just wish me luck and say lots of prayers (for those of you who do pray) because this truly is a major step for me to be taking.

Hi Tony

I am unsure how it works in the States but I have had a 'lazy left eye' since birth and an operation at the age of 8. It has made no real improvement and I have sat driving tests in several countries and if you have clear vision in your right eye you will be fine.

I have it too. Tony, please let me know how this goes, as the CA DMV has been taking my heart out over this for almost a decade!

Of course you have my prayers!

Is your case as severe as mine? You can shoot me a PM and we can discuss. The NCDMV didn't give me any problems - it's just the fact that I only missed one stinkin' question on the written test for the permit but I'm still wanting to have the surgery so that I'll at least know what it's like for my eyes to look "normal" (and I don't mean that as a mean slant towards you, my friend. I promise. I appreciate the prayers very much!

Thanks, everyone. I appreciate the good wishes (and the prayers from the ones who do pray here). I will definitely let you know how it goes. I'm EXCITED as I can be to actually experience what it feels like for my eyes to look normal and, more than that, get my driver's permit and license!

I am into the "whole prayer thing" and will pray on Brian's behalf also.

That's just the way I am.
