beck2 July 24, 2010 (Pen Men at Work): A tearful Glenn Beck faced a 6,000 strong audience at the American Revival show. He discussed the problems that he is facing with his health at present. The tour is based on the topic of the present day America failing and the need to examine the way the founder fathers had administered the nation so that went right to the top.

Beck told the audience that he found it difficult to focus on any object for long. His doctors has diagnosed the condition as macular dystrophy which Beck misinterpreted as muscular dystrophy the condition that weakens the muscles of a human being. ‘I went to the best doctor I could find.” He added, which was his way of taking a dig at the health reforms.

The doctor, apparently told him that he could go completely blind eventually. Again this may occur next year or it may not, said his medico. An enraged Glenn had gone ballistic and yelled at the doctor. He accused the doctor of charging him a thousand dollars and telling him something which he had known since the age of 3. The probability of going blind was something that the doctor didn’t need to tell him.

The macula is a small portion of the retina which is responsible for seeing the sharp and clear lines. Any damage to this area will cause a loss of focus with the vision becoming blurred. Recognizing faces become a problem for those afflicted with macular dystrophy too.

However, Beck recovered his composure soon enough and prayed to the Lord. He said that his eyes would be willingly given to the Lord if needed. He also joked that he was too lazy to learn Braille.
