As a result of a battle with meningitis when I was 1 month old that affected my vision; I had to undergo eye surgery twice, first at 10 months old and later at 2 years old and had to wear eyeglasses continuously since then and was expected to do so for the rest of my life. Since I started using the Egyptian Healing Rods in 2005 I've had 2 vision exams performed. On the first vision test my eyeglass prescription was reduced for the first time in my life to the point of not being required to wear glasses to drive. By the time I got my next eye exam in October 2007 the optometrist determined that I have perfect vision on one eye and near perfect vision on the other, therefore I don't need to continuously wear eyeglasses anymore, they are optional for me now with minimal prescription to be used only when fatigued. This is a nice and welcome benefit from the Egyptian Healing Rods that I didn't anticipate.
