My best impression of "deer in the headlight" look.

I managed to speed up my appointment with the ophthalmologist. I was booked in for the 29th of September, but after ringing them back this morning and mentioning what my doc had said about retinal detachment and possible blindness, they bent over backwards to get me in today!! The technician put some dilating drops in my eye and when the doc came out to see me, it was too soon... The drops had not done their job. So what does he do? He shoves an extra dose in my eyes!!! This was at 10:30am this morning... It is now 5:15pm and I still look like I'm high on LSD, walking around with my sunglasses in the house (why am I reminded of an old Corey Hart song!?) The good news is that it's all good. My poor left eye is suffering the same fate as my right one; PVD (or post vitreous detachment). I was told it was fine, but to keep an eye out (bad pun) for extra "floaters". If more appear, I should come back ASAP, otherwise all is fine and the annoyances of flashes, floaters and blurriness could last up to 6 weeks, at which time I should return for a follow up.
