Hi guys!  

Just saying hi since every one that plays this game is my friend! Yeah yeah, even the salty immature ones.  I recently changed my in game name by adding the Cyclops to it.  Reason being is I have contracted an incurable eye disease.  Every day I wake up there is a little bit less  vision out of my left eye. Started at 20% loss and now about 80% and at some point it will be 100%.  Doing my  hardest to prevent it going into my weaker right eye.   I play every day and I win more than I lose, but there may be times I lose my patience so when U see this guy just say hi, try to sink me  and ignore my protests of dam noobs playing like dam noobs.  Ill still play every day but maybe not as much as trying to get my fill of things outside the game while I can.   There is no prevention and no cure and the odds of contracting what I have is about 10 cases for every million people.  That's about the same of getting 5 nikolais in a row in 5 crates.  Sorry If I take up your time reading this but just me raging a bit staring at my screen.  Hope to see you all in the game and the day or weeks you don't see me anymore, its not because I wont play it's because I can't.

Did you get a second opinion on your eye? Since many eye diseases that rob you of your sight are often treatable if you find somebody that can fix them.

FYI, The eye disease is called aion, been to the best specialists in NYC after my regular eye Dr said nothing can be done, go home come back in  a month, cold creep he was. Your cells in your eye nerve die off due to inflammation of the nerve head behind the eye due to a lack of blood supply to the optic nerve.  The result is that your optic nerve dies slowly as the cells die...There is no known prevention and there is no known cure. Sorry to bore you guys but answering the questions.

I recommend Ocuvite and large doses of vitamin C. May not help you but it can't hurt you.

 

Vitamin C helps promote healthy capillaries.
https://www.aoa.org/patients-and-public/caring-for-your-vision/diet-and-nutrition/vitamin-c

In 2011, researchers revealed that vitamin C may play a more important role in vision health than was previously recognized. Scientists at Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) found that nerve cells in the eye require vitamin C to function properly.

Appreciate the feedback. Haven't been sitting around waiting for the lights to go out.  Been tracking around the world to see what and who maybe working on this disease.   In Germany they are to trying to use electricity to improve vision after the attack settles down after a yr.  and I'm now tracking down a clinical trial of a drug from Quark Pharma and Cornell is one on the participants and lastly I have the name of a Dr that may have info about another.  My bad eye is still going dark and a sad day will come to not be able to drive but at this rate of decline wont be long.  Scary part of the day is the wakeup and see what vision is left.   I have put myself under additional care of a Neurological Ophthalmic Specialist Doctor at one of the best Departments in the world.  Had to fight to get in there last week and now under more care.  Since there is no known prevention as well as cures I'm going through a whole regimen of testing and preparation against it going to my weaker eye.  This a fast moving situation since the attack occurred starting 3 weeks ago.  See you on the high seas.

Hi Guys, still on the attack here and sinking you fully sighted nooblets. The name of the eye disease I have contracted is called NA-Aion and affects about 1 per 100,000 people so since there is no money to be made off of patients of it, the amount of research in it nil to small.  What I have learned is that the first 2-3 weeks after the initial attack is key to saving remianing sight in the affected eye.  Goodie for me my MD and my Opthalmologist didn't know that and sent me home to go blind with no hope.  I now belong to a small group of patients worldwide about 150 with the disease and I plan to start educating and informing the medical professions abt the disease and what to do when you see the disease in its early stages. Speed is of the essence in that once the cells in the nerve behind your eye die, they will never come back to life.  Thanks to the players here for reading about it here and wasting their playing time.

Tuna you don't have to apologize for writing this... I can speak only for myself but I believe there are many who do care and are willing to learn. Your a good man as far as I can tell, and fellow ship mate in this game I have learned a lot from ...you see even a Cyclops can drive a boat;)

Hi Guys, Still floating shiny side up, My left eye is just about gone now and still sinking ships.  Working on anything that can help the  problem going to the remaining eye.  Dropped out of cb's now for the most part.  Still fighting the good fight and when the Cyclops sinks one of you 2 eyed players just say hi and dont rage, lol
