Near Vision Issues
 
So I woke up one day last week and my near sighted vision went bad, things are distorted and blurry etc...

Long range vision seems to be fine however.

It appears to be my LEFT EYE by covering each eye and testing I can see when I cover the left eye that the distortion goes away but not the blurriness, this is due to my right eye being the worse but I wonder if that is no longer the case.

The worst part is that I had a checkup in Jan-Feb of this year and got new glasses and both pair behave in a similar way.

So off to see my primary care on Thursday to see if there is something else going on.

It was fine the night before going to bed but now its pretty bad.

I will try to update when I get more details.

Thanks, but I can play some games as I've memorized many of the moves to fight the mobs already ;)

I do eat some carrots, I'm just hoping this isn't something worse with my vision that can'g be corrected.

Yeah, I also heard raw carrots are good for the eyes. :)
I also don't see very well on close, for both eyes (15 cm from my eyes, and I can barely see text, it becomes blurry), but I didn't get glasses yet, because I see everything a little further from my eyes.

Like you said, it's best to see and visit doctor, and see what's going on.
Good luck!

I had my primary care physician check things out today, he suspects a detached retina.

He is referring me to a specialist, an Opthomogist that is versed in this kind of thing.

The office does specialize in Lasic Surgery so who knows ;)

Time to upgrade that infrared vision... :)

It seems that it can take 2-4 weeks to heal retina...

gimbal 20 September 2019 10:53

carrots help prevent eye damage (somewhat), they don't cure it unfortunately. They're not magic sticks ;)

Lasic surgery can be hit and miss. My dad had it done. The end result is that his eyes got overly sensitive to sunlight requiring him to wear sunglasses more and now he still wears regular glasses throughout the day anyway for tablet and phone reading purposes, because he got sick and tired of having to put on and take off his reading glasses dozens of times a day.

Carrot is a joke, that they used to say to kids in order to eat their veggies...

My dad also had eye surgery, that was freaky, because I was watching on screen in waiting room while they operated (he still has WHS tape with it) and since then he is not wearing glasses. He did have issues with sensitivity of eyes first couple of weeks, but adjusted later on.

Just watch less pr0n and eyes will do better... :p :)

Well here is what happened,

I had two tears in my left eye, this caused a retinal tear.

Luckily I had two options:

1) An IN Office, less invasive procedure

2) Or a Hospital, more invasive procedure.

The Hospital procedure has a somewhat higher success rate however the recovery time is much longer as they have to put you under and then do an eye buckle procedure.

The IN Office procedure only requires numbing of the local eye and eye socket and then they use something like Liquid Nitrogen to freeze the area above the tear/tears and then inject a small bubble of ai to stick to the newly repair injury area.

The bubble keeps the torn retuna in place while the eye heals and slowly gets absorbed back into the body.

I can see some differences already but since its still healing I see a huge fuzzy spot where the injury is healing.

No guarantees but usually has a pretty good success rate.

Of course I opted for the IN Office procedure.

There is some truth to it just not as exaggerated as it is made out to be. But you know, veggies are just good for you in general so you're always right in some way when you say such things :)

Popeye is the biggest liar when it comes to veggie myths :)

I do like carrots and have eaten them all my life however I still have had bad eye sight nearly all my life ;)

As for Popeye and Spinach, I do like fresh spinach leaf but once you cook it no way, blech......

Update
 
So the IN Office procedure didn't take, the retina started to tear once again so I had to have an emergency procedure in the hospital.

This is where they drain the vitrious gell and floaters and any blood etc from inside the eye and replace the inside of the eye with an inert gas to keep the eye shape.

Then for added strength they added what is called a buckle or a fancy name for a custom rubber band around the eye to keep the injured area in contact with the gas.

Everything is looking fine today after post op but of course my eye sight is crap at the moment and will take a good 2 ~ 4 weeks for the gas to clear up and get absorbed by the body.

Thanks, and I hope so too but it had to be done as it's my best chance to get some kind of vision recovery :spin

I've heard that by using f.lux on PC monitors, one can ease eye strain to some degree (outgrowth of recent ergonomics studies).
Has something to do with the default color temperature usually being too cold. Anyway, just like the others, wishing you
a swift recovery.

Anubis 29 September 2019 06:36

All the best man. Take care of that eye, get off the screen.

I knew pr0n was dangerous, but had no idea how much. :lol

Muzkat 29 September 2019 14:46

You in are my thoughts jmmijo. Hoping everything turns out for the best.

gimbal 29 September 2019 23:18

Damn, all the best to you and your eye buddy :(

Fissuras 30 September 2019 00:21
