OK - my visit to the eye doctor determined that I have PVD, a separation of the vitreous humour from the retina, but no tears, so no immediate fear of retinal detachment. Very common in individuals of a certain age, particularly women. The doctor also mentioned developing glaucoma. He didn't prescribe any medication, but I need to see him again in six weeks.
My feelings about this are divided between "Oh, crap!" and "Boy, I'm glad it isn't worse!" I was aware that my distance vision (something I never even had until lasik surgery a few years ago) wasn't as good as it should be because reading road signs has become more difficult.
All in all? Definite relief that there is no retinal detachment and that the doctor didn't seem that concerned about the glaucoma. I'm glad to have that out of the way, since I've worried all week.
Snippets in the studio. Ready to apply binding to a little quilt...
and pondering what to do with another eco print.
Have a great weekend!
