Jun 21, 2017

So you've been noticing that your vision isn't what it used to be, so you go to the ophthalmologist and he diagnoses it as FCED, Fuch's corneal endothelial dystrophy, a very rare eye disease with no known cause, that eventually will take your sight.

Fuchs' corneal dystrophy usually affect people after age 50, but it can be detected earlier with a comprehensive eye exam. It appears to be more common among women than men, and if either of your parents has Fuchs' dystrophy, you have roughly a 50 percent greater risk of getting the disease.

Some of the symptoms include:  Glare and sensitivity to light
    Eye pain
    Foggy or blurred vision
    Seeing colored halos around lights
    Difficulty seeing at night
    Poor vision upon awakening that may improve later in the day
    A feeling that something is in your eye (foreign body sensation)

But how do you break the news to your loved one that you're losing your sight, when you're not dealing with the news that well yourself.  Here's a short film by Jubilee that tells the story of a relationship based on Blind Devotion.
