My Eye Report: 2 Retinal Tears Found and Lasered

So I did find an eye centre to go to.
With the eye exam, the Ophthalmologist discovered 2 retinal tears in my left eye.
One big and a smaller one, she said.

Why the cause?
To say it simply, some people with myopia are just unfortunately prone to it.
( My myopia is not that 'intense',
neither was I ever punched in the eye, suffered an infectious disease,
or know of anyone in my family with this history. )

Maybe we can blame it on bad genes.

The tears were 'stapled down' with laser the same afternoon.
Like so:

The Ophthalmologist has done what she could.
There are other degenerations in both eyes
and need to be checked up by a Retinal Specialist.
I meet him in a week's time.

Despite the horror, I know I am in good hands.
Let's hope he has only good things to say.

This is the eye clinic I'm going to:


  1. You must be so relieved to finally know what's going on! The Hubs and furry kids will take good care of you. ;)

  2. Looks like a good eye-center to go to. Whishing you good luck, of course and lots of courage !

  3. It sounds like you are receiving excellent care, that must be such a comfort.

  4. Oh dear! I hope they can help as much as possible...what a worry it must be - but I guess you can be thankful that you live in progressive times! xxx

  5. Oh, I'm so glad to read this news (late, as I took time off from blogging) - you did so wel to get it seen to despite the language difficulties. I'll be thinking of you for the future meetings.

  6. So the cause is only "bloody unluck"???!! Sh*t!!!!!

  7. It must've been quite an ordeal for you, but it's a good thing that you've made it through the end. My grandmother in Houston really needs to undergo LASIK consultation to see how bad her eyesight was.


How I love comments.
