It was a hot day about the middle of August. While I was weeding a field, sweat or dirt got into my eye and I felt a pain in it and covered it with my hand for a while. After returning home, I still felt I got something in my eye and there's something wrong with it.
I still felt uncomfortable after a month, so I had an eyesight test at an optician's shop on the way to shopping. I was advised to see an ophthalmologist and went to have an examination a week later.
At the hospital, I was applied something like eyedrops so as to open an eyeball in about thirty minutes. After that, I had an eye examination once again and was diagnosed with "left eye central retinal vein occlusion."
The doctor said to me, "This is an acute disease, and if you leave it untended, you'll become blind in one eye. As a treatment for it, we irradiate laser phototherapy eight hundred shots for the first time, five hundred for the second and three hundred for the third."
I said that I didn't do it that day. Then, the doctor reminded me that I should do it as early as possible, otherwise I would lose my eyesight. However, I thought that I'd never come back again.
The next day, I went and worshiped at a branch and told my situation to the teacher of the branch. Afterwards, I prayed to Meishu-sama for protection and started receiving Johrei every day. Also, I had it at home every day.
I could not see my grandchild's face sitting in front of me at the table with only my left eye. I could not see even my face reflected in a mirror. A television screen looked distorted, and I could not read even large characters, so that I was very shocked.
In the summer, I wore sunglasses whenever I went out, but when I looked only with my left eye without sunglasses, I saw about three balls sparkling or my eye seemed to be covered in cobwebs. Still, because I could see well with my both eyes, I could not believe that my eyes were so bad as to go blind.
I participated in an overnight training session held at the sacred ground "Shinonkyo" in October and prayed to Meishu-sama for protection. Then, during the discussion meeting at "Goshinden," something like mucus gradually came out of my eye. I was grateful that bad things such as impurities were eliminated.
One day, as I had a touch of cold and blew my nose, I felt something come out of my eye in large quantities, could not open my eye and it rose before my mind that something like a white thread came out on the back of eyes. As I washed my face and looked in the mirror with my left eye, I came to see my face slightly. Then, I was also able to see vaguely meshes of a tatami mat or the hands on the clock which I had been unable to see. I thanked Meishu-sama that this was given by the grace of daily Johrei.
Now I can see clearly and have completely recovered. If I received the laser treatment then, I wonder what would happen to my eye now. I thank Meishu-sama once again for giving me a right choice. From now on, I am going to tell the miracle and my gratitude given from Meishu-sama to many people.
