About My Eye Appointment


Hello to all my prayer warrior friends, thank you all so much for lifting me up. I love and appreciate you all so very much. My eye doctor said I have nerve damage in both eyes, and it can not be reversed. My right eye, which is the eye that I had the cataract removed from last year, needs to be lasered due to scar tissue. The cataract in my left eye is really bad, and needs to come out. There is high pressure in both eyes, caused from my diabetes, and my high blood pressure. I also have suspected glaucoma. He did several tests on me today, and I have to go back next thursday, feburary 7. On that day, he may go ahead and laser my right eye. He said that my pain is caused from the high pressure in my eyes. So, I continue to wait. Hopefully, he will tell me how he plans on treating my problems next week. He said my eyes are not going to get better due to the nerve damage. But, only God truly knows what my future holds. If my eyes never get better, I accept that. With God by my side, everything will be fine. Continue to open the eyes of my heart dear God, I want to see Your beauty daily. Please continue to pray my friends, God is always listening.

So if he does the laser work will it improve your vision at all? And will tell you how he is going to deal with the pain in your eyes?
I will keep praying.
Love ya girl.

Oh Denise, you are so brave and you make me feel so humbled. I would be too afraid to put contact lenses in my eyes! Oh may God pour out his grace exceedingly, abundantly. May he bless, bless, bless you in wonderful ways to encourage and give you hope and joy.

bless your heart...... I will put a little ribbon on my work jacket tomorrow for you also.. I have one for Jean and Deena... I know that God can intervene in this and He can heal this vision ..... He can... Remember when He bent down and spit in the dirt and came up and put that mud in that blind mans eyes...... He healed him with the very dust that he created man from in the garden... If he can do that He can speak a word and heal those eyes... I believe that Jesus created eyes for that man out of the dirt..... He can do that... He can heal your eyes............


Jhn 9:6 When he had thus spoken, he spat on the ground, and made clay of the spittle, and he anointed the eyes of the blind man with the clay,

Denise,

I agree with Denise, that your eyes can be healed if it is God's will.

I have glaucoma and if the pressure in your eyes is that high, I suspect it as well. Please be sure to inquire about that at your next doctor's appointment.

I was losing vision in my left eye and when it was lasered and had healed, I could see very well with it. I will pray that you will also receive this blessing.

Love you and am praying for you. May His will be done.

Blessings,
Mary

The battle the fray. The attack from behind with all of the firery arrows. Remember that you are in the palm of his hand. 10,00 may fall but it will not come near thee only with your eyes will you look on to see the destruction. You do have eyes that see. Those are the eyes that are 20/20. The pain in you physical eyes...may it ease may it pass.

Good Morning Denise,
I will be praying for you and your eyes. I know GOD will put HIS healing hands upon you. HE has great plans for you no matter the outcome. I do hope the laser will work for you tho. Only the Great PHYSICIAN can heal your eyes. Before I had my left eye removed when I was a little girl, I had glaucoma that had set up in it as well. That's why it had to be removed. Of course, the technology they have today is alot more better than back then. Take care my friend and have a great day. May God Bless You and Yours.

Love & Hugs,
Karen H.

IRENE said...

I love the last phrase about the eyes of the heart!..I shall be praying for you, especially these days.

Gretchen said...

Lord, I pray that You would put Your amazing hand of healing upon Denise's body and, specifically, her vision. I pray a complete and utter restoration of vision in both eyes, and a complete cessation of pain. Thank You for the prayer warrior, and encourager You have made in Denise. We know no one loves her more than You, sweet Abba. In Jesus' name. Amen.

Sharon said...

Denise you are in my daily prayers and I keep believing and trusting for your eyes to be healed.
You are an amazing lady!
