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.  ☺

Hahaha! Welcome to the old and falling apart club! So pleased it wasn't a detached retina. They seem to have looked after you quite well at the hospital, don't you just love the NHS when it works properly. Hope the floaters don't drive you too mad! Lots of love and prayers xxx

Old and falling apart--oh yes, I recognize that one! I am a few years younger than you and arthritis is kicking in. Both sides of my family suffer from this, so it was only a matter of time. I am so glad that your eye condition was not horribly serious! Take care of yourself.

So glad it's not serious. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Sometimes getting older isn't all it's cracked up to be but think of the alternative! Look after yourself and rest up.

I have already written on your facebook page love so you know how relieved I am. I do think that maybe a few dasy rest from close work and typing to much would not do you any harm..pity the summer weather has gone again or you coudl have just sat out in the garden relaxing listning to the wee birds etc..but indoors I am sure you can listen to some good radio programmes as you it there quietly with your eyes closed...periodically calling on Todd to make you a nice cuppa herbal tea LOL...love you take care xxxx
