Can we talk about ArterioVenous Malformation?

Arteriovenous malformation is an abnormal connection between arteries and veins, bypassing the capillary system. It wasn’t until I blogged about Surviving Stroke that I knew how serious today’s topic is, infact there’s this Instagram account of someone I know from distance that is apparently a survivor and full of energy.

Keloid

Thief of Vision- Glaucoma

I was opportuned to attend a conference organised by AMSA (African Medical Students Association) on ophthalmology and Vision science some weeks back and I can say I was glad I did for beside refreshing my knowledge on what I have been taught, I equally acquired new knowledge especially on optics history and glaucoma which is the main inspiration for this post.
