I ended up in the emergency eye clinic this week. I took a hit in the eye with the hook of a bungee cord while setting up for the show. I was having some symptoms of a detached retina so I decided not to take any chances....and after many friends yelled at me....I went to the eye clinic.
Interesting procedure to examine the retina....she had to put pressure on the eye and look at it under a bright light with a opthalmascope. She took two long cotton tipped swabs and pushed on my eye from various sides....oh that was so much fun. The good news is that she couldn't see any rips or tears. The bad news is that I now have a large floater in that eye. It's annoying but I guess I can get used to it. Hopefully it will dissipate with time.
And I found out I have a cataract in the other eye. Woo Hoo...I'm getting old!!!!
