    Outstanding story!

    My dad actually had that. It can be a really big deal.

    Dr said he was thankful he showed up as soon as he knew something wasn’t right.

    He said in terms of stuff that can cause permanent damage to your eye on a 1-10 scale, this is about a 9.

    I'm terrified of it happening to me. My vision is so poor that I'm at a much higher risk of retinal detachment and was advised to not play contact sports.

    Just don't hesitate to run to a Dr. if you have any questions. (Get into an eye dr ASAP.)

    In my dad's case, he said he thought he saw a wasp flying around, and it just never would go away. He called his opthalmologist and he said "come in right now..... How soon can you get here?" The dr had him treated that afternoon. (Something about a glob of oil to put pressure somewhere and get the retina back in the right place.)

    The dr said if you see anything like that, don't mess around and wait a couple days. It's a time critical thing.

    Yeah, about a year and half ago, I woke up one Saturday morning and even after washing my face and getting the sleep out of my eyes, something was "off". Felt like I still had stuff in my right eye. Kept rubbing it. Finally, sat down, turned on the TV, and a commercial came on that had almost an entirely white screen. I noticed it looked odd. Closed my left eye and the screen turned dark pink, almost red. I knew there was a prob. Went to the local LensCrafters around the corner and they said it was nothing they could do, I needed to see a specialist. I went on Monday. Had a leak in my retina. Ended up having to get a shot in my eye to stop it. They told me I was lucky that I came in immediately and didn't wait.

    Well that's just odd.
