Hi all … I’m taking a break to rest my eye after laser treatments for a detached retina. Will post again by Monday. SUNDAY UPDATE: Here’s a word of advice that has nothing to do with gardening, but everything to do with seeing. If you find newly formed black spots or threads – fondly refered to as floaters – in your vision, or develop flashes in one or both eyes … SEE the EYE DOCTOR. It could very well be a detached retina, which is an eye emergency. If caught early, as in my case, you may be lucky enough to only have an in-office laser treatment – what my hubby called “having my eye welded.” If the detachment goes beyond a small area, or you have a decreased field of vision – which, thankfully, I did not – you may only have to recoup for a couple of days. The bottom line? Vision changes, especially those that happen over a short period of time, should be checked out immediately. I sure am happy I caught my emergency quickly.
