I've got one! Started out as a few floaters and flashers, but in the last few days, the right eye became fuzzy as well as having "dementor" type floaters.
So I head off to the eye doc this morning, and he sends me to the Retina/Vitreous specialist, and I am assessed as having a retinal tear with vitreous hemorrhaging. He could try to laser the tear, but the field is really bloody and clouded. So, I'm in line for a partial vitrectomy, with laser goodness. Then, for a week after surgery, I have to do "positioning". That's being face flat for at least 95% of the time.
Have any of you guys done this? I knew I was heading for cataract surgery, sooner rather than later, but this new development scares me.
I'm scared and sad, and want to kill my child because he's 18 and just being a needy monster about the whole thing.
Off to go blub some more, and do laundry.
