I'm a 35 y.o. male and I was wondering is it possible to become blind quickly or is there always gradual degeneration?
Over the past couple of months I'd notice my vision seem to become somewhat dim,usually under low light. Perhaps my eyes are beginning to have trouble adjusting to changes in lighting.
Then every once in awhile like today, I had been feeling like there was something on my eyelid that I'd try to brush off but I discovered that it may have been my vision. I used to be more nearsighted but it seems to have improved slightly over the years,perhaps it was the nutritional changes I've been implementing. Anyway that doesn't really seem to be a factor here. Perhaps also it's that I may be becoming diabetic.
I ask all this here because I don't know if I can really afford medical checkups at this time.
