Dianna Hobbs was recently diagnosed with an irreversible eye disease and one of the leading causes of blindness
According to theover 4 million Americans will have glaucoma by 2030.
EEW Magazine President, Dianna Hobbs, received her own diagnosis last year, coupled with that of ocular hypertension, and was told that she will be blind within five years.
“Many patients don’t even realize they have glaucoma and it’s one of the leading causes of preventable blindness,” says Almost 40% of vision can be lost without someone noticing hence why this eye disease is also known to be “the sneak thief of sight.” with Shofner Vision Center.
Well, that sneak thief caught up with Hobbs, 39, who is known for inspiring people around the world with her faith messages. Hobbs’ Glaucoma was first detected after she began having trouble with her vision and went to have an eye exam. That’s when she was referred to an ophthalmologist—the top one in the Western New York region where she and her husband Kenya Hobbs live with their four children.
Hobbs’ glaucoma and high intraocular eye pressure was so advanced, it had damaged her vision greatly already, so much so, it resulted in the specialist’s grim prognosis.
The web publisher, who began vlogging on YouTube several weeks ago, shared with her small group of viewers Sunday how devastating it was to hear her specialist say she would definitely go blind.
“So I’m sitting out in this parking lot, at this clinic, crying. And I wish I could have told you that, in that moment I just gathered myself, I just collected myself—I didn’t,” she said.
Instead, the rattled best-selling author, Top 100 blogger and award-winning media specialist picked up the phone and called a North Carolina-based friend, Cassandra Elliot—a prayer warrior who ministered to Hobbs at her point of need.
“When I talked to her, instead of speaking to this sad, devastated Dianna, she began talking to the Lord. And she said, ‘You know God, Dianna has served you faithfully. You know she needs her eyes. She began to decree and declare things over my life.”
Hobbs continued, “And I remember her saying, ‘God, I’m not praying that you would heal her eyes, but that you would give her new eyes.”
