What Do You Listen To When You Write?

Wednesday, November 14, 2007

Results are in :)

After waiting for an hour and a half at the neural ophthalmologists office yesterday with my eyes dilated so wide that there was barely a ribbon of iris left, I was told some of the best news I've had all year.

My depth perception and field of vision haven't changed since this incident.

My optic nerve in the right as well as the left eye are undamaged and look to quote the doctor "beautiful''

My retinas are also undamaged and 'beautiful'

My problem is likely slight trama to the eye in some part resulting in a lingering after image that will resolve itself in time. How much time? That is unknown but seeing as I'm not in danger of losing my sight, I can be patient.
