One comment that surprised me is that when checking my right eye expert #1 remarked that it had vitreous separation that had occurred some time back. I never even was aware of any event with that eye.

The over-arching story is that it happens to all eyes eventually when you get old, and that the event ranges from never noticed to traumatic retina destruction in the worst case.

Regards... Guy (or is that Geye)

if 'vitreous separation' is what i think it is, i think those are called 'floaters'. very disconcerting if you don't know they're fairly common in those over 50-55 and don't really require any event--the particles just come unmoored.

when i was growing up in the 60s, none of us ever expected to live past 30 and now that some of us have, it's a real shock how many of our systems and sub-systems are fading and failing. [g]

best of luck to you.
