Sesky Eysis. (Sexy Eyes)

I am very interested in the eye as the organ of vision, and equally keen on preserving mine. Almost three years ago, my haematologist sent me off to see an ophthalmologist because of frequent ‘eye complaints’ and thus the journey begun. Turns out, just by having sickle cell disease I could lose my vision. I know, it’s absurd! This sickle cell thing keeps cropping up in the weirdest of places. Even worse, being that my genotype is SC, I am at an increased risk of developing sickle cell retinopathy.
