Flashes and floaters 闪光与漂浮物

I was almost not able to make my JB trip.

Last Friday morning, when I was loading things into my van for the JB trip, I noticed bright flashing lights coming from my left side of sky ... as if the sun was flashing.

Then I realised it was from within my left eye!

I moved my eyes to the left, to the right, closed them .... to test out what were the causes ... flashes appeared on the left side of my left eye when I turned to look at left, and more floaters appeared!

I told my wife about the abnormality of my left eye, and we decided to see an ophthalmologist immediately.

My regular ophthalmologist checked my eyes thoroughly with various equipments and procedures. She was patient to explain to me that:

1. The cause is the degenerative of my left eye - drying of gel in the eyeball.
2. Vision OK.
3. Pressure OK.
4. Eyes' nerve is OK.
5. No retina detachment.
6. The condition (drying) would stabilize within a year.
7. The floaters would be there permanently.
8. Flashes would appeared/ disappeared from time to time.
9. I will get use to it as time passes.
10. The same problem would occur to the right eye later.

And it is very important - I must check my left eye myself regular. Should I find dark patch (patches) in my vision field, must see her immediately ... possibility of a retina detachment !

However, I can continue to watch TV, use computer, enjoy beautiful scenery and seeing beautiful ladies .... albeit a slight distorted vision with flashes and floaters, (picture right) .... and go for my trip and travel.

We started our JB journey at almost 5:00 pm (instead of planned 9:00 am).

Praise and thank God for all things happened.

Flashes & floaters -Before and Now 闪光与漂浮物 -以前与现在









我的新山旅程,几乎不能成行。

上个星期五早上,我正放置行李进入我的客货车,准备新山的行程之用。我察觉到好像有闪光来自我左眼的左边,像似太阳在闪动。

后来我发现,原来是来自我的左眼里边。

我把视线向左望,向右望,闭上眼睛 ,看看是什么原因。这时更多的漂浮物出现在视线里面。

我把这不正常的状况告诉了太太,然后我们决定必须马上去看眼科医生。

我常去的眼科医生非常仔细的,用各种仪器,程序检验了我的双眼,然后很耐心的讲解了给我们知道:

1. 我的状况,是因为左眼的老化而发生的 - 眼球内的晶体乾固所至。
2. 我的视线良好,
3. 眼睛神经线良好。
4. 眼睛压度良好。
5. 没有视网脱落。
6. 这个状况(乾固)在一年内,会稳定下来。
7. 漂浮体是不会消失的。
8. 闪光会时现/时失。
9. 时间久了,会渐渐习惯。
10.右眼迟些也将会有这状况的出现。

非常重要的:我必须常常自我检查左眼。假如发现视野有任何的盲点(黑色),必须马上回来给她检查,因为有可能是视网脱落。

不过,我目前可以继续的看电视节目,用电脑,观赏美丽的景色,欣赏美女。。虽然视线会有闪光及漂浮物的出现(如右图)。

我们在傍晚大约五点才开始新山的行程,而不是如计划中的早上九时。

无论如何,我感谢赞美主在一切发生的事上!
