Back from retina doctor

with one comment

Things proceed apace, and I see him again in 3 weeks. The bubble has gone down about halfway, and I can see clearly (though needing correction) the top half of things, but the bottom half is still obscured by the bubble. But wait! The bubble, being gas, would be on top of the vitreous fluid—and it is. I always forget: the eye uses a convex lens so image is reversed and upside down—our brain fixes that. So the “clear” part of my vision travels through the vitreous fluid, which is in the bottom of the eye, which is where the image of the tops of things is formed. (The light from the bottoms of things, naturally, goes through the convex lens and thus goes to the top of the retina, where the gas bubble still interferes.

I have the long-lasting gas bubble, but eventually it will go. And the retina repair is doing well.
