my visit to the eye specialist centre

Saturday, March 14, 2015

I finally decided to go on an eye specialist check up...
after the optician scared the hell out of me the other day..><
 I was searching for which eye specialist centre to go...
because I am worry that it might be very costly...
Airen was suggesting me to go for Tun Hussein Onn Eye Hospital...
since I could not decide on which to go so I just went ahead to go to this hospital...
before that I did make a call to ask for their consultation fee..
and it was quite affordable to me so yerp this one it shall be...

Airen was very nice to offer to fetch and accompany me for the check up..:)

when we were there at the hospital...
holy cow!!! crowded!!! long queue!!! chaos!!!
no different like standing at the hospital emergency room..*wtf*
it took like almost forever to get myself registered...
and we were told that we might need to wait for another one to two hours for consultation..:o
Airen immediately google-ed to check if there is any other eye specialist centre nearby...
and she automatically called to Optimax at TTDI...
and she even told the nurse my condition...
and even registered and made appointment without asking me..
and appointment was in one hour time...
she just walked to me and said "I just made the decision for you..let's go!!!"
*LOL!!!*

and then off we wazed ourselves to Optimax Eye Specialist Centre at TTDI...
apparently this place feels so much nicer compared to the hospital...
patients and doctor are all Chinese..:)
*not trying to be racist but I feel more confident to find the doctor is Chinese*
so I was brought to test for my eyesight power where I was supposed to guess the alphabets on the screen...
I remember I kept saying there is letter "G"...
but Airen told me there was not any "G" at all..-_-!!!

first test showed that I have pretty bad eyesight because the doctor was reading through the medical card with my eye condition written...
and suddenly he said "very bad" before starting to check on my eyes..*wtf!!!*
I went through three machines to scan my eyes...
on the last machine I was asked to look on a blue ray light and was dipped with some sort of bright yellow solution on my lower eyes...
and *snapped* my eyes were imaged onto the monitor...
and I was then required to test on the volume of my tear...
where the nurse hanged a piece of paper on each of my eyes for five minutes...
*ignore ugly picture of me*

I was diagnosed with comparatively serious Dry Eyes..o.0
*you may read what is dry eyes on this picture*
the doctor told me that I am supposed to produced 20mL of tears at average (marked on the scale)...
but both my eyes only producing 3-6mL which is far too dry..><
on the images taken it can clearly seen that there are cracks all over my eyes on the cornea surface...
my right eye is slightly serious because there are also cracking on my pupil...
that has blocked my vision...
which is why I have serious blurriness on my right eye even with my spectacles on..o.0

and because I have the habit of wearing contact lenses...
it gets worse because when my eyes dry up really fast and my lenses are still on...
it eventually rub on the dry surface which then leads to the cracks,,><

sounded to serious right?
not sure if this is heal-able because according to the brochure there is not any cure for dry eyes yet..*wtf!!!*
the doctor said that I need plenty of lubricants on my eyes...
I was prescribed with eye drops, eye gel and omega 3... 

the eye drop is a little too troublesome because I need to drip one drop on each eyes..,
EVERY ONE HOUR..o.0!!!
I think there are about six bars of these drips...
I have finished up the first vial and it can only drip for about four times for me...

I was asked to apply this gel onto my eyes four times a day...
with this small amount...

I have spent about RM400 on this whole eye check up...
I just hope it can be claimed under company's medical claim..><
