see my ophthalmologist and he said I might have early symptoms of macular degeneration. Maybe. He’s not sure but he’s sending me to a Retina specialist Nov.20th. It’s not urgent. Basically is an eye disease that blocks out central vision. So it’s like I would (assuming that’s the problem) have a blind spot in my central vision. Not good. But there are ways and means to treat it and even slow it down. It’s not a returning of a cataract because cataracts do not return. I think it’s that Yag laser treatment. It’s hard to say at this stage. But anything is possible.
Anyway, we came back from the office and got that taken care of. It’s really nice out there. I’m a little worried about my vision but I’ll know more details in a month from now. But whatever the Dr suggests I’ll have to do.
Okay I didn’t get much sleep. I went to bed about 2am and dozed off as I tried to get back to sleep but failed. Worried about the appointment didn’t’ help. I wanted to stay up and listen to Coast for the first hour about the Hubble Telescope. It seems Nasa has approved a mission to have it serviced with new cameras etc.
I was kind of hoping there would be an Oiler game on tonight but it’s not until Thursday night.
Anyway, that’s all for now.
