I have an eye appt in the morning and I am so scared that they are going to tell me bad news. I have been having some vision problems in my left eye for a bit and it's not going away. I have been having white flashes and my peripheral vision isn't what it used to be.
I am scared they are going to tell me I have a retinal tear or something. I am keeping my fingers crossed that it isn't anything major. But my luck it will be something they can't fix. :0/
Have any of you ladies had this problem? If so, what was the outcome?
Please send happy thoughts that all will be ok...Thanks so much!!

I had the same thing the beginning of last summer. It started when all of a sudden I saw a HUGE floater occur over night in my left eye. It's a huge black blob right in the center of my vision. That night I started to see bright white flashes in the upper left of my eye. I went to the Opthamologist the next morning & he confirmed the floater & checked & thank goodness I had no retinal tear. The flashes were associated with the breaking off of the floater (vitreous fluid? not sure the terminology). Anyway my peripheral vision is still not great on the left & I still have occasional flashes. No tear but the floater is there to stay. Hope all is well with you too. Do you have high blood pressure BTW? Have that checked too!
