    jinny,

    What symptoms do you have?  Just curious because I have been having some issues yet I do not see anything on my eyes.

    Hi

    Thanks for posting.

    My symptoms started as deteriorating eyesight but not too much . It was the clarity that was strange.

    I saw odd things whilst watching TV as well...People's eyes looked like small star shining brightly. My hubby's eyes seemed to change colour as well.

    Seen a specialist last week who gave me a diagnosis and went on to say I had early onset of Cateracts.

    I received his written confirmation this week but no mention of careracts; instead LNS as in my heading above.

    When I looked it up it showed you a picture of a dog with a white pupil so I panicked !! Didn't mention humans at all ...very strange.

    I am going to see my optician this weekend and she assures me she will look into it for me and chat when we meet. So, I'm sure by the weekend, I will feel a whole better.

    How are you doing and have you concerns too ?

    Best wishes

    Lenticular nuclear sclerosis is pretty much the same as early-onset cataracts. It just means that the middle part (nuclear)  of the lens (lenticular) is hardening (sclerosis) which means that the light cannot pass through as easily so you might notice hazy vsision or be more sensitive to glare. This is a normal change in the eye and may develop into cataracts which affect your vision more but this could happen very slowly. To keep your eyes as healthy as possible its a good idea to not smoke, and to protect your eyes from UV by wearing sunglasses.

    Hi Rose

    Thank you for your advice; much appreciated.

    I did wonder whether I would look for a suitable eye vision supplement to take regularly like Red Krill Oil.

    I feel helpless not doing anything.

    The other diagnosis alongside that was Fuch's Cornea Endothelial Dystrophy so maybe worth taking a regular supplement.

    Thank you once again, Rose,

    Kind regards
