Island hospital contacted me yesterday for a medical checkup before the final job confimation. Took a day off and was full of enthusiasm.
The MO gave me a full body checkup until it came to checkhing my vision. That's when I failed my medical checkup.
I couldn't see clearly with my right eye, all I can see is some finger and light movements. My vision is being blocked by a large cloud of mass. I was born with a congenital cataract. My dad thought it would disappear when I was growing up, but it did not. I discovered it myself at age 7. I remembered going to countless eye specialist but the my dad decided to go against the operation.
At that time, I was too young to make any decision.
I don't blame God and my parents for this. I never did tell anyone because I don't see as a defect! I've been using my left eye since birth until now and I can even drive and see perfectly well.
The medical examination just stopped there. I was told to wait outside. I kept praying silently in my heart that this defect won't cause this job application.
The HR personnel came and told me that the x-ray dept manager would not want to hire me as he's afraid that my eyesight will affect my clerical work.
PPPLLLEASSHH, I'm in the clerical line for donkey years!
