I certainly have had my eyes opened (excuse the pun) in the last two and a half weeks.

A recent incident has meant that I have lost part of my sight in my left eye - I can hold my arm infront of my face and not see if with my left eye

It's too easy to take your sight for granted, it's only when you don't have it, you realise just how important it is!

BUT as the saying goes "Where there's blame, there's a claim"

I am still not sure if it is permanant or not - the eye hospital tomorrow should be able to tell me if it is or not.

There has been no improvement in my sight after two and a half weeks, even with anti-biotics, but we shall see (excuse the pun again) what tomorrow brings!

If it is permanant, I will not be able to gain my pilots licence, which will be the only thing I have wanted to do in life down the drain!

This is how much I can see out of my left eye:

    Loss of sight is permanent, and I have been told by the CAA that I am not able to fly aircraft again, which means that I won't be able to complete my private pilots licence, or go on to do my commercial licence, which is what I had aimed to get in the compnay I work for

    Hope you get better soon mate, a couple of years ago i lost sight in both eyes after an accident with a firework. Luckily it only lasted a couple of weeks before it started to improve. Most terrifying two weeks of my life most probably!
