I am grateful for my sight! We were up at our cabin in the sierras with the family, about to celebrate the 7th night of Chanukkah when my left eye developed a spider web pattern in front of it. Our place is over 50 minutes from the closest medical facility. I had this problem a while ago and it is a symptom of a torn retna. I know that speed is important to treatment so we left the family to celebrate on their own and hopped in the car to Sonora
We had to wait a long time for the opthamologist to answer the call and then drove from the hospital to meet him. He was able to perform the lazer surgery in his office and my sight in that eye is returning gradually. I feel lucky to have caught it in time.
