    Cataracts are pretty common, especially as you age. Dunno if they qualify, as cataracts are more of an nuisance than a disease, as I understand it. I mean, it's elective surgery.
    Now get yourself some of that glaucoma, and you might get some.

    I don't think there is any known benefit from mj for cataract sufferers. Surgery should fix it up, yeah? That, or a corneal transplant.

    Damn . . . I had a retina detach about 3 years ago (no, Dammit, NOT an old war injury) and had laser surgery to repair the tear and stop the internal bleeding, but other than not being able to see clearly through the scar tissue, I'm in no pain. The weed does allow me to look beyond the blur (not notice it constantly).

    to answer your question...if you have pain and your docotor can verify this pain that your having then yes you can get medical. put dont expect that when you see your docotor. most medical patients have a long medical history with there pain and disease.

    if youve gone to your docotor before and he knows about your pain, and other medicines hes perscrbied you havent helped with your pain then IF medical is allowed in your state it is possible to get medical marijuana for you eye pain.
