Spot and Floaters in Vision

Ten days ago, there came a spot.

This scary spot lasted 2 days.It was there, wherever I looked, however I looked.
Accompanying the spot were these dark shadows...

They were new to me. Or, I've never really noticed that many, before.

And while I allow myself to grow accustomed to these 'ghost shadows', perhaps fear and imagination played along too.

These symptoms warrant an eye check, a.s.a.p.


But like a dog chasing its tail, I was told by receptionist at a general clinic, 'If it is a problem in your eye, this clinic is not good for you.' So I tried the university hospital. Guy at counter suggested, 'Better to see a private doctor. The next appointment is in April. And you will still need a letter from a doctor.'

Wish me luck.

  1. oh no. :o( have you gone to the eye doctors? presuming that you can get an eye check up and glasses anywhere like you can here and in the US? as they should be able to refer you to a hospital once they have looked in your eyes.

    what do you need to do to get your eyes tested?

  4. Oh good grief, that is annoying for you! But looking on the good side, I had problems like this, increasing slowly for over a year, before I asked my doctor. He referred me to the eye doctor and after a wait (no difference there) it turned out to be nothing too bad at all - just a need for glasses when driving or looking at screens, and some eye re-education. I think one assumes the worst but in my case it was nothing too worrying - I really hope you get some productive and helpful support on this soon.

    love

  5. I can recommend a good eye doctor if you need one. He has offices in Lachen and Einsiedeln - a bit far away - but he fixed up my husband's eye very well when it was injured. Let me know.

  6. Go to the optician! Doctors are crap from my experience. I'd say go to the dentist if it was anything oral too. The optician would rather see you in an emergency than wait until April when the damage could be irrepairable depending on what it is. Not to scare you of course, but if nothing else it will be good to see properly again! I have floaters which you describe after the spot and they're annoying but largely untreatable, but my gran has maccular degeneration and she's losing the sight from the middle outwards. It's terrifying.
