More Information Than You Require

Well, at least I know what’s happening with my left eye now. Posterior vitreous detachment, or PVD. Doesn’t that sound lovely? My primary symptom has been photopsia. There’s a slight risk of retinal detachment, which would require laser treatment, but the doc thinks I’ll be able to wait it out over the next several weeks. And then it may start all over again in my other eye. Speaking of waiting it out…I’ve always known the drops cause my pupils to stay dilated longer than in most people. Today I found out it has something to do with the pigment in my pupils - and the rate at which the drops are metabolized. Go figure. Until this wears off I will continue looking like a whacked out chipmunk.

day 269, post eye drops
