I have just been for my yearly eye test and I'm looking for some help with several problems the optician has raised with me.
Firstly, I'm apparently in the early stages of getting cataracts in both eyes. So that is the first thing I would like to get under control. I would rather avoid having surgery when they get worse.
Next, I also have raised eye pressure.
Lastly, and this is something that has concerned me for a few years now. When I have to do the visual field test I sometimes fail it. Luckily they allow me to try again until I pass.
As a bit of background, for over 10 years now I have stopped driving at night due to struggling with seeing where I'm going. As a carer, I rely on having the use of my car to transport my elderly parent around and I'm worried they may take my licence away if I can't find a way to improve my vision.
So, what I'm basically asking you knowledgeable people for is any recommendations that will improve my eyesight. Are there any vitamins/supplements or anything else that will help me? I'm 60 years old. Thank you.
