My Vitreous Humour
If you read my last post about my worries about the visual disturbances I was experiencing and how I was worried that it might have something to do with all of the torching I'd been doing recently, I have since had the occasion to go to an eye doctor to find out what's going on with my eyes.
Good news and bad news.
Good news is it's not from torching
Bad news is that it's nothing that can be fixed.
Ironically enough I am relieved that there's nothing that can be done and I don't have to curtail my artistic efforts. How's that for some reasoning?
It's my vitreous humour
My eye jelly is liquifying
I'm experiencing a vitreous tug which is causing the spots or shadows in my distance vision.
It will soon totally separate and there may be more exciting visuals to contend with.
But now I can try to ignore it rather than obsess about street signs pixelating in the distance.
Oh, and I have an astigmatism!
and I should be using #4 strength reading glasses and not #2 as I have been.
And I'll be sporting progressive lenses all the time
not just reading glasses any more.
It's because I'M GETTING OLD!
And on top of that I saw this little guy

Happy birthday Cass-man!
