Medicine 2

I thought my eyes were getting better ... turns out that I just got used to everything being zoomed in so much. Most stuff is now just as blurry with or without my glasses - just a different blurry.

... and my left eye hurts again, I'm going to take a nap and hope this doesn't mean it's going to bleed inside again.

On the bright side - my tan is still coming along fine. (I'll take my victories where I can).

Now classes are over I've been spending a lot more time in front of my PC and my eyes are starting to suffer. Your eye scream [tvtropes.org] stories have motivated me to buy a Kindle so I can at least read pdfs without staring at a screen.

The kindle doesn't have a screen? (Ok, I know what you really meant, and yes, it's probably a good idea :-)

And no, after reading the blurb you linked to, I am *not* going to look at the examples. I have one sister who's had several vitrectomies [wikipedia.org] (it's as gross as it sounds), and I'm not looking forward to wearing sunglasses for several days to hide a pair of black eyes once they start injecting stuff every few months (but since the laser didn't work ... and the only way to "work up" to a needle in the eyeball is to keep telling myself "it won't be that bad, it won't be that bad, it won't be that bad").

There's also symptoms of partial retinal detachment (bright flashes in the affected area) that I haven't been telling them about ... and since it's been 6 months and that part isn't getting worse, I guess it's safe to tell them and not have them try to dig in and fix it when I go back next month.
