Brief Answer: Need an immediate correction to avoid complication Detailed Answer: Hi, As I read your query you have a complex medical history with depression and high blood pressure and suffered a head injury as well. You also have chronic ailments like imbalance, chronic pneumonia. Now you have new problem that is you have blurred vision. You fear that you will soon lose complete vision and cannot be treated. First let me assure you that with the present technology available we can correct most vision problems. Since you are not diabetic there is a high chance that your vision problem can be corrected. The most probable reason for your vision problem could be 1) uncontrolled blood pressure. You should first control it with regular medication 2) Since you had sustained head injuries previously, did the doctor ever say that your vision would be affected soon?? 3) Is that you are not able to balance after your head injury? Do you have the MRI scan or the reports after the injuries? That will help me understand the problem better. If you have poor vision you obviously will not be able to walk and tend to fall frequently and suffer more head injuries. 4) You might have a cataract (opacification of the lens in the eye) that needs to be corrected with a simple procedure that is less than 10 minutes. So I suggest the immediate need is to see an Ophthalmologist to check at the back of the eye that is the retina. The optic nerves and the lens. So I see an immediate need to consult the eye surgeon to prevent any form of complications to your eye. If you see now the eye surgeon can manage it effectively. I am still be available to answer all your queries.
