Hi again - my patches from Anissa's Fun Patches just arrived. For anyone out there who wears glasses and a patch, these things are fantastic! Comfortable, excellent coverage, not as obtrusive as traditional pirate patches.
I'm having another uveitis flare-up at the moment (started Saturday, I think) and am VERY light sensitive, so these came at just the right moment.
Medical questions for Irishangel and other wise people - I saw that uveitis in horses is often called moon-blindness, because it recurs so regularly. A search on "moon-blindness" led me to "hemeralopia", which on some sites means "inability to see clearly in bright light" and on others (less commonly) means "A disease of the eyes, in consequence of which a person can see clearly or without pain only by daylight or a strong artificial light." First, which way is the word most commonly used? And second, if it's "inability to see clearly in bright light," does it make sense to say that I have hemeralopia as a consequence of uveitis? Or should I stop trying to be pretentious and just call it "light sensitivity"?
