I went for an eye check up yesterday and have an interesting conversation with my optimist.
A: How’s your 👁 conditions recently? Any improvement since last visit?
J : Yes. I have less dry eye conditions these days, but eyes easily get tired with increasing of computer works.
A: Did you drink a lot of coffee?
J : Yes, I drunk 2-3 cups every day. I am coffee lover nowadays.
A: You need to reduce coffee intake, turn to tea if you need the caffeine.
J : What’s wrong with coffee?
A: You may develop glaucoma and lost your vision if you drink too many coffee …… (deleted 1000 words of lecture from him).
J: Then what shall I do with my new coffee machine? I just bought one yesterday?
A : You can still drink your coffee …. just limited to one cup every alternate day.
J : Oh no doc, I need my coffee everyday.
A : You want to lost your vision again? ….. I am sure You will enjoy and appreciate the coffee more if you know you don’t have limitless quota…..
J : okay, doc. Health come first.
Here go my brand new coffee machine that I bought for celebrating my 5 years anniversary in Hong Kong. Look like I can’t drink many coffee as I wish anymore 😕
The eyeball constantly produces a fluid called aqueous humour, which normally finds its way around the eye, draining back into the body when there isn’t any space left. But when the fluid isn’t able to drain properly, it causes a build-up of pressure in the eye, known as intraocular pressure. In turn, that pressure damages the optic nerve, as well as the nerve fibres from the retina (the light-sensitive tissue that lines the back of the eye). If left untreated or uncontrolled, glaucoma starts by causing peripheral vision loss, which may gradually lead to blindness.
