Retinal Tears

Retinal detachment is a condition in which the vitreous gel that fills the eye contracts and fails to separate cleanly from the retina. Instead, the vitreous pulls and tears a hole in the retina. That is more than I wanted to know about what retinal tears are. However; that is just what happened to me about a month ago. I had laser surgery, and have lost some peripheral vision. I still have some floaters and some blood in my eye, but that will clear up in time.  So I will get back to a little more regular posting when I can see a little better.   I've been feeling a little rough.


  1. Lou..So sorry to hear about your retinal tear. How awful, but hopefully you'll get back to normal soon!

  2. Take care of yourself, and may you heal quickly :)
