... I guess my MMD started off as wet. When I first went in for my cataract evaluation they told me I had a "bleed" in just my left eye but it had healed on its own.

... Last night, while on my computer, I noticed small spots and lines of 'wavy' distortion. Nothing right in my line of vision, but lots outside it, mainly from my left eye. It was a weekend of more caffene, lack of sleep, and a lot more stress, so maybe that has something to do with it? Maybe ocular migrane? There was no pain at all, or dizzyness, or any other symtoms. It lasted... (0 replies)

... Brian, it's great that your left eye distortion is improving, quite rapidly, despite all that this eye has been through. Hopefully, the distortion will just disappear. Are you saying that your field of vision in this eye is reduced, by the scotoma and the scarring, to only the lower left quadrant? ... (699 replies)

CR-39 has a higher Abbe number than higher index plastics that are often used to make thinner lenses.
Polycarbonate impact resistant lenses have a lower Abbe number;... (7 replies)

... You don't mention your age but, as you say there is distortion, it is always possible that there is an internal problem with that eye. Have you tried looking at an Amsler chart (download and print from the Internet). That would give you a clearer guide to the extent of the distortion. You may need to see an ophthalmologist for a more detailed examination. (5 replies)
