I have always loved going for a drive on a sunny spring day. The warm sun shining in and offsetting the cool breeze from the open window has given me a feeling of hope and freedom. With the radio turned up and the wind whipping my hair, I feel alive again after the gloom of winter. This morning, though, on my way to work, the sunshine was not my friend. It created a set of tiny sparkling points of light that obscured my vision. Even now, in my relatively darkened office, I can see the quivering remnants of those sparkles.
I don’t really understand why the light is doing strange things to my vision. When I ask him about it, my retina specialist just shrugs and says that there has been some damage from the procedures I have undergone. Some vision changes are temporary and some will be permanent. We will have to wait and see if the sunshine sparkles are here to stay.
