Today I went to my ophthalmologist so he could dilate my eyes and take a look at my retinas to make sure all was well. While I was nervous, I was hopeful that he would tell me all was well and that my recent vision abnormalities could be easily explained due to stress, not enough sleep, or some other simple reason.
Unfortunately, he said “hmm, there is definitely something going on with the retina” (this is the retina that detached in 2004). He did a special test while I was there (I believe he called it retina mapping), and while he saw abnormalities, it was not clear enough for him to be able to determine what the exact problem is (as he said, my retina is atypical and pretty ugly from all the scarring, lasering, and the buckle from the 2004 detachment). So he is sending me to a surgical retinal specialist in lower Michigan. My appointment is this Friday. Not sure where all of this will lead or what it may mean for my vision.
