I'm sorry you have to endure all of that crap! My fingers are cross that something will work out for you.
I understand!! I was born with cataracts that I had removed when I was a baby, and then due to misdiagnosis at age 3, lost all vision in my left eye. They thought I had lazy eye but really had glaucoma. So now I wear a contact in my right eye to correct that, and then glasses over contacts for distance. The questions of ...why are you wearing glasses over contacts and the blank stares of asking to sit closer to the board/admitting you cannot read something far away...blahhh it's getting old.
Good luck Nyanko!!! I'm crossing my fingers for you and hope you come out with good news soon!!!!
