I was so worried about my left eye because of the floater I have had for a few months (since last summer it was noticed). I had my eyes looked at and learned about peripheral vision. When the girl examined my eyes and did the test to check peripheral vision, I had gotten a little anxious because she said I had some peripheral vision loss. The questions popped up in my anxious mind “when did this happen?”, “am I going to go blind soon?”, and “how it can be? I was a little scared that my sight was changing for the worse. After the examination was over by the girl who was doing the initial tests, a resident doctor came in and examined my eyes after dilation took hold and explained about the membrane I had in the back on the eye. More anxiety and confusion. The thought “what is going on? Popped on my mind big time. I could not wait to see Dr. K because he would explain away my anxiousness before I left for home.
With Dr. K, the appointment went just fine. He explained the peripheral vision issue I was all of a sudden panicking about, telling me that I have had it ever since I was born due to brain injury that had caused cerebral palsy. He also explained the membrane in the back of the left eye just like the resident doctor Dr. R did, and that Dr. K will keep an eye on it every year from now. As far as my vision is concerned nothing has changed once again. I have an understanding of what is happening, and I still see 20/20 in the L eye and 20/40 in the R eye. Understandable…. I have had the same prescription since 2014. Dr. K felt that since my eyes did not change enough for a new prescription. I left within an hour thinking that I was going to be there for two hours and got home 9 minutes after the time my designated ride was for pick up after appointment was scheduled at 4:20 PM.
