Two eye doctors appointments

Monday my stepson was home with a stomach bug. My husband was at work and the vision in his right eye started messing up. He made a call to the eye doctor for an emergency visit. I hated to leave my stepson home sick but he is almost 18 and my husband needed to have his eyes dilated so I had to drive him. Basically he was told these floaters are here to stay as he is aging and this is what he will have to get used to with the genetic condition he has. The doctor said he is a bit younger than they usually see this happening. I’m not allowed to talk about the name of the condition to people in case that is your first thought to ask in the comments. I apologize. My little one didn’t like the nurse bothering her daddy. Each time the nurse went near my husband she would say “yaya check out my shoes” “yaya check out my hair bow.” She told the doctor that her daddy is very nervous and that her sister is so nervous she stayed home. In truth my little one was the nervous one and her sister was working. When the doctor wanted to examine my husband my little one and I went out to the waiting room so my little one wouldn’t be so distracting. We got back for a follow up in two weeks. Hopefully it’ll be nice weather and my little one and I can go for a walk instead of waiting in the waiting room. Thursday came around and my son had an eye doctors appointment to. His was just for an eye exam. He wound up being a little near sided and is excited to get glasses. We go back to get them in about 2 weeks. While he was being examined by the eye doctor my little one was calling this doctor “yaya” as well. We were giggling over it. Photo is unrelated. It’s just a neat snail I saw back in August.

Floaters are annoying, I have them, but they do not disturb my vision too much. Your little one is really lovely.

@LadyDuck his is right in his line of vision. I know with his condition people can go blind so I’m hoping he doesn’t continue on that path. His mother has only partial vision in one eye but that didn’t start until her late 50s. My husband is 38.

@shaggin He is too young to have floaters. I started a couple of years ago and I am 73.

@sallypup I’m running low on my stock pile of photos to share here. When the photos weren’t working on here and when I was away from myLot all summer I had a lot of photos saved. I’ve used many of them since my return.

@sallypup most I share on facebook so I don’t share them here. I could take photos anytime but I just take them as I see something neat which doesn’t happen all the time especially if I’m home. Oh and yes I use BeFunky an app to make the photos small enough to post on here without them getting to grainy

@shaggin Can you snap more photos? I just had issues with downloading photos and found I had to make the photo quite small before it would appear on this site.

Your little girl sounds very verbal for her age. I bet the staff got a kick out of her.

@much2say there really isn’t anything that can be done I’m just hoping it doesn’t get worse. There’s always the chance he can lose his eye site over time.

@jstory07 we really don’t think there is anything that can be done. It’s something that will likely only get worse over time. We just pray he won’t be blind.

@Lindaohio thank you so much for reading my posts. With all that is going on with your husband it is very kind of you to take the time to leave me a little comment. I can only imagine the annoyance of floaters. I hope he doesn’t continue to get more.

I never had floaters until my ophthalmologist did LASIK like surgery, and now those stupid floaters are like spiders in my eyes. I’m sorry to hear your husband is having such trouble. Anything to do with eyes is scary.

Your husband's condition sounds as though it will be annoying. That's a very colourful snail. I haven't seen one that colour.

@Judyev hopefully he gets used to it and it doesn’t get worse. I’m leery about my little one and I driving with him but I also don’t want to drive with him in my car when we go out together this Sunday. With how he is so awful yelling when I drive I don’t want him riding with me.

Your little one sounds quite adorable. Remember I was also excited for my first pair of glasses. But it got too much after a few years, so now I only wear them when I have to.

@TraveOnWorld my little girl is very entertaining. She’s funny without meaning to be. That’s lucky you only have to wear your glasses sometimes and not all the time.
