|sort of like this only finer|
This is not the first time this has happened. A couple of years ago the same type of thing appeared in my right eye. It made it hard to drive, read, watch TV. Work on the computer was nearly impossible.
I tried keeping that eye closed while doing those things. Then I made myself an eye patch. Oh it was something to be seen! I made it out of blue card stock and stuck it under my glasses. My family laughed at me! I looked ridiculous of course!
It took quite some time for that bleed to finally clear up. This one has pretty much disappeared already.
For that I am thankful.
I go to my Opthamologist every 6 months. That is unless something weird happens. Lucky for me I go next Wednesday. I will tell him about this latest group of "floaters". He may decide to do some laser surgery. But then again, perhaps not. Since it has cleared rather quickly, I am hoping not. It is not a comfortable procedure.
Have you ever had laser eye surgery? Your pupil is enlarged and your eye is "frozen" with drops. A lens is placed over the eye. This helps to keep your eye open, and allows access for the laser to do it's job. The laser is like a million, gazillion needles poking in your eye at a rapid fire pace! Approximately 2500 to 3000 tiny burns. You try to blink but you can't. Tears are running down your face, but your head is clamped (sort of) in a device that will not allow you access to your streaming eye. The other eye is also tearing up (in sympathy).
|not only are you clamped but they hold you there too!! just kidding!|
I have had this done many times over the years, but it has been several years since the last time.
I sure hope I can avoid it this time.
