It is certainly chilly today although I believe tomorrow will be worse once the wind switches over to coming from the North.
Went for an eye
check today as I feel the need to keep cleaning my glasses so was
worried something had changed in my left eye. It has a posterior
vitreous detachment (PVD) in progress (the jelly in my eye is
thinning and the eye ball is ever so slightly coming away at the
I also had to inform
them that we have newly diagnosed glaucoma in the family so now I
need yearly check ups and they are free.
Anyway, a good look
entailed including eye drops to expand my pupils – all is well. I
didn't need a digital photograph of my eyes as that is done at the
hospital but decided to pay the £10 and have them done. That way, the
optician's (whom I have always used) have a visual record of what is
actually going on and can compare things on each visit.
Luckily, nothing has
changed except I have a huge floater in my left eye which they think
is what is causing the very slight but noticeable blurred vision.
When the PVD first
started the floaters were very apparent but you learn to live with
them. However if you get a big one it might (and has) slightly
affected the vision even though I can't actually see the floater itself.
Ah well, such is
life, no doubt all part and parcel of the ageing process.
Have you had your
eyes checked recently? Don't skip it as they can pick up glaucoma,
high blood pressure and diabetes amongst other problems that you may
not be aware of.
