Eyes

Do any of you remember I posted about my eye at christmas? How my vision through that eye went super-blurry?

It was difficult to quantify it because my vision is not perfect anyway. But I wrote a couple of posts over christmas when I was very spooked – it felt like the beginning of the end.

Since then, I didn’t write about it, not because it got better, more because I figured that people don’t want to listen to somebody whining all the time. And, in the couple of months since then, I’ve kinda learned to live with it.

On Saturday, I took a short afternoon nap, and as soon as I opened my eyes again everything just “felt” clearer.

Again, difficult to quantify because my eyes are damaged anyway. But at Christmas I downloaded an Eye Chart just to start keeping tabs, I’d made a mental note to look at it every month or so, and I was indeed seeing better than the last time.

Throughout the whole time, I didn’t seek medical attention. There was just too much COVID going on at the moment to feel safe anywhere near a hospital. But it looks like whatever happened has gone some way toward healing itself.

    • Thanks, Janis. I’m still at a loss to work out why I saw a step-change in my vision, but I’m hoping it continues to get a bit better. I know there’s only so far it can go but just knowing that it hasn’t deteriorated says, at least, that everything is stable.

  1. Now that you’ve been vaccinated, maybe you could book an appointment at the opticians.

    My place has a scanner and they are able to take a detailed look at the back of the eye and perhaps explain what is going on. And can refer you to the hospital if further treatment is needed.

    Because they take NHS as well as private patients the staff have also been vaccinated. The staff wear PPE and appointments are spread out, no hanging around waiting to be seen. I imagine other places are the same. Not worth taking chances with your eyesight, get yourself seen pronto!
