Remember those times, when we were kids, and our elders would give us the speech about our reading in dim light. It was something like "You CAN see NOW, but mark my words: you have only one pair of eyes" ..well, at least that's what they used to tell me all the time.
This is a cautionary tale!
..and these are precaution. :)
The truth of the matter is, as much as we don't like being wrong and being told things by those older than us, these eyes are the only ones we get. Only few of us will spend their entire lives without any worry about them - but, for most of us.. it's something to be aware of.
My personal touch to this story is the fact that, in my family, we have a hereditary factor for losing one's eyesight slowly and without return.. by the illness called "glaucoma". Basically, the doctors call it the "silent thief" here, because it creeps up on you for years, and takes away your sight slowly.
So, for me.. this tale is to be told
