It would appear that
old middle age is taking its toll.
It seems that I have a complete failure to cross my eyes.
I have been getting headaches when reading – been finding it difficult to adjust focus from long to short – been using my reading glasses (with contact lenses) more and more.
Sixth months ago I started to get serious floaters in my right eye – when I saw flashing lights as well panic set in and I attended the eye emergency room at Northampton General Hospital. Apparently ‘posterior vitreous detachment’ is normal – sounds odd but it is normal – but the headaches that I had been getting – less normal.
A couple of appointments later and I am tasked with ‘exercises’ I have to look at things getting closer and closer – without allowing them to split into two. If you are like my better half – this is easy. He can use my card of dots to the 8th or 9th dot with ease – my eyes hurt from the 3rd dot onwards and I cannot get closer than the 5th – YET.
Next appointments in 3 weeks time.
