My Joy Was Shortlived...

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!

Ouch, that's unfair. It can be corrected with classes. My paternal family has a history of it and I slightly have it now but I don't think it could disqualify you if there are solutions to it... Hope,, they'll change their decision..
