Just letting you know . . .
I have had a posterior vitreous detachment. This is a condition where the vitreous (Jelly like substance filling the eyeball behind the lens) becomes detached from the retina at the back of the eye. He could also see where there is an artery at the bottom of my eye has become irrevocably blocked, but he says it has probably happened quite a while ago. I am to go back in a months time for a field test. (he thinks that hopefully it will have cleared itself by then.) This PVD is usually associated with age,although very short sighted people are more prone to the condition at a younger age than others. (That would be me.) Very short sighted. If the floaters and flashing lights become more intensive along with a curtain effect encroaching across my vision it is imperative that I contact the eye clinic urgently. So for now that is all I know. In short I am old and falling apart. Very relieved it was not a detached retina.
So not bad news and a relief. Thank you all so very much for your prayers and happy thoughts. I have been blessed. ☺
