World Glaucoma Day - Kota Eye Hospital

  1. 1. World Glaucoma Awareness Week 7-13th March, 2010 Saga of a Glaucoma Blind To my closest friend I tell this story, And as I speak, I tend to worry. I wonder at night and sometimes in day, I never thought so much I will have to pay. They told me, "hey dude, you need a checkup" And I always said, "You just shut up!" "Glaucoma is a silent killer", they often said, And for those words, my ears were dead. I was forty then, looked fit and fine, But for my eyes I was never kind. "Do hell with the doc", I had in my mind, Not realizing that one day, I could be blind. As months went by, headaches came in, So severe, as if rewards of my sin. Me and my conscious still did not lit, And I kept on cornering the doctor's visit, “Oh! Colored haloes around the lights I see”, I exclaimed and thought, “Am I guilty?” But I lived like that for more than a decade, Unaware, that my vision was going to fade. I went to the doc when I was fifty-two, But about my problem, I had no clue. He did all tests, and tried his level best, And told me I have already totally messed. I was having glaucoma in both my eyes, With no cure present, I knew eyesight will die. There was only me to blame, Yes, I should have listened to them. And today when I am blind, My friend writes this, to make you remind. Don't neglect them – they see for you, Please love your eyes - they are only two. To my request, I hope you will listen, “Don't let anyone be blind, my Son!” A Poem by DR.
