eye surgery coming up

4 posts in this topic

So as I have discussed earlier, my floaters are coincidental and not related to my hppd. I only see my hppd in the dark and on flat surfaces so I went to see a doc about getting a vitrectomy. He's on board but it turns out I have two retinal tears as well. I believe these to be recent because lately I have been getting split second static vision with sudden movement like standing up fast or turning my head fast. The retinal tears have to be lazered a week from wednesday then I can have my vitrectomy. If all goes well I will only be plagued by the blue shapes I see on walls and in the dark and I will have peace when i'm outdoors during the day. Lets hope all goes well.

I forgot to mention that my floaters are due to a posterior vitrious detatchment. The doc said he had never seen floaters like mine before though...

This leads to an interesting question. Can LSD actually damage the eye? If you have severe floaters I would reccomend seeing a retina specialist if you have the time and money.

Good luck with the surgery hope all goes well. I very much doubt that LSD or any psychedelic has the potential to cause eye damage. A psychedelic drug is basically just a collection of keys put into the bloodstream that fit locks in the brain. I know that there has been some cases of eye damage from poppers recently though.

The laser surgery went well and I'm having the flashes less often. Although they say it takes about 3 months for the retina to reweld itself. On a side note I didn't have this symptom until I started taking nortryptaline but I doubt thats causing it.
