Floaters – Not the Trollenberg Terror

Floaters – never heard of them.

Last Friday evening I noticed a spot just to the left of where I was looking. When I looked at that spot, it moved to the left and so on. I had not been looking at a bright light and I hadn’t seen any flashes and there was no pain. OK, so what was it? I had no idea.

Saturday – spot still there.

Sunday – spot still there.

Today – spot still there.

This morning, after driving my wife to work, I stopped in at my optometrist’s office. He immediately sent me to an ophthalmologist (Clarity Eye Group). Got in at about 2 o’clock. Quick check – dilate the eyes – exam – wait – take a picture of each eye. Hmmmmm . . . hmmmmmm . . . hmmmmm . . .  can’t find anything wrong. You’ve got a floater.

What’s a floater? Is it serious? What do I do about it?

“I’ll show you a video.”

Waiting room TV – to one of the assistants – “Show this gentleman the video on Floaters and Flashes.”

Ten minutes later, still no video.

Bye, bye. Have to pick up the wife from work.

Looked up floaters on WebMD.

Nothing to  worry about – yet. Whew!!!!!

This evening – spot still there.

I feel like Lady Macbeth.
