I've been having some problems with my vision these past few days. I went to the opthalmologist yesterday. I have a posterior vitreous detachment in my left eye.
It's causing me to see flashing lights and floaters that are really distracting but not painful.
This problem could lead to a retinal detachment that can cause blindness. I can't imagine not being able to see! I thought it was funny that doc said "just keep an eye on it and let me know if it gets worse." How do you keep and eye on your eye? :)
He gave me a new prescription for glasses. There is no treatment for this problem so I will just have to learn to live with the flashes and floaters. I need to get new glasses and contact lenses but hopefully I won't have any more problems.
I have an even greater appreciation for my vision today! No wonder I was having so much trouble threading a needle to work on my little quilts!
Thankful for all mini blessings!
