Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan has recently expressed concern over the condition of his eyesight in a post on his blog. The actor said that he is afraid that he might just turn blind.
He wrote in his blog, “The eyes they see blurred images..the vision reads double and for someday now I reconciled myself to the fact that blindness is on its way, to add to the million other medical problems that invest in me.”

The actor also went down the memory lane to recall how his mother would cure him if he ever got hurt in the eyes. “But then .. today .. thought of those early years when Ma used to take the edge of the sari, the ‘pallu’ , make a soft round ball with it , blow into it to make it warm and place it on the eye .. and BAM ! problem solved ..So followed that .. hot watered a hand towel and placed it on the eyes,” he wrote.
He further says “spoke to the doc and followed his instruction of putting in prescribed eye drops every hour… reassured me that I was not going blind – that there was far too much time being spent in front of the computer… the eyes were tired… that’s all…”
“And YES .. that old Mother’s technology worked .. YEEAAHHH .. I can see now!!” he signed off.
