This thread has made me feel a lot better about
this. Yes q, I have had a retinal scan, 3 infact, all good on that front. kopstoda, I have seen a number of eye doctors, both optometrists and opthamologitsts, they are all happy with what they see. Believe me I like most people take their vision very seriously.
On a funnier note, I HATE the eye floaters. I have them in both eyes. Just last night I took the family to an ice cream stand. We met up with friends and while I was talking to my friend a stringy bungy cord floater flew into my field of vision because I turned my head suddenly. So there I am talking to this friend trying not to be distracted by this long thin floater that is front of his face. I guess I wasn't good at disguising my distraction because my wife says to me, "What the hell are you looking at?" I didn't realize I was staring not at my friend but my friendly floater that resides in my eyeball. 2 funny.
Good, I am not alone on this.
