Went to see my eye doctor for check up and he said that one of my blood vessels in my eye could be moving towards an occlusion. He said there is no cure other than to control my high blood pressure and cholesterol since its a vein that has Harden or field with plaque.

To say the least, its freaked me out and increased my anxiety. Guess its time to take my cholesterol and BP seriously and just hope for the best. Probably time for a lifestyle change. How do you handle diagnosis like this?

Hi and welcome Jacob. Sounds like the doctor has already explained what to do about the diagnosis. Try to not think about it and eat healthier. Good luck, and again welcome.

Welcome, Jacob! Yeah, that would be a little freaky, but it sounds like you have a good doctor taking care of you. Are you treating the high blood pressure and cholesterol already? Glad to have you here!
