Update on my eyesight...

Many, many thanks for all of your prayers! I love you all very much:-)

Here's the update:

I have a huge floating mass in my line of vision inside my right eye. An exam by a specialist a couple of years ago showed that I have thinning spots in my retina, so I have to be very careful when my eye acts up. For the last few days I've seen flashes (like someone is taking my picture off to the side of me) out of the corner of my right eye, and the vision has gradually clouded and dimmed.

It's almost like my eyeball is dirty, and a big splotch of mud is in the middle of it. Very frustrating! Trying to read gives me a headache, so I'm bored silly. I also get dizzy when I walk or try to search for something (like my husband in Target yesterday:-)

So, I just have to wait to see if it dissolves by itself, or if I have to see the specialist again:-( And I don't like him...he's a cranky, cranky man...


Happy Reading (slow...very slow reading in my house:-(

I sure hope that your cranky doctor doesn't come with bad breath!

Hey, now is the time to listen to some uplifting music!

Sorry to hear about your eye Deena! Might be time to break out some audiobooks?

Hope it gets better soon.

Deena,
Please go see the doctor! This sounds like retinal detachment which is very serious and must be dealt with quickly. Praying that your doctor will be kind.
