Why wait until it's you?
I never understood why people like playing the odds with their quality of life? As our eyes age, floaters develop. It happens to everyone as their vitreous, the gel in the eye, begins to break down. Once someone gets a floater, they are usually very disturbed that there is not an eye drop or another treatment that can remove this annoyance for them. Why wait until it happens to you to? Let's be proactive and raise the funds that we need to fund the research for floaters. Trust me, once you get them, you will want them gone. A donation to the Eye on Vision Foundation is one step closer to ensuring the best sight possible as your eyes age.

 
3rd Annual Dinner was a Success!

We had our third annual dinner and auction last night and it was a success! We raised an additional $1570 on top of the already raised $2200. That brings our total up to $3770. That means that we have just $1230 to go to reach our goal of $5000. Donations are still coming in from supporters who were unable to attend last night. If you are able to lend your support, please make a donation through our website or mail your check to:

Dinner and Auction Tomorrow!

We are busy getting the house ready for tomorrow's event. It is hard to believe that this is the third event that we have had. Our goal for this year's event is $5000. So far we have raised $2200. We have $2800 more to go before 8 p.m. tomorrow night! Will we make it?

I'm going to take a new turn with this website. When it first started I wanted to offer a lot of facts and articles to really inform our readers. However, over the last year I have realized that there are really no articles out there on PMS, very little on floaters, and a few more on macular degeneration. I haven't been able to keep the website very up-to-date because of this.? Because of this, I've decided to start posting more personal accounts of what it is like to live with PMA and floaters. I'm also going to seek out individuals who suffer from AMD to let us know their own experiences.

?While I'm typing this, my floaters are driving me crazy across this white computer screen. It is one of the main reasons that I don't spend much time on the computer. Sure, I'll check in from time to time on Facebook, email friends, and surf the web a little, but those floaters drive me crazy every single second of my web time.?

Speaking of computers, I went to my usual weekly vision therapy session today. We were working with the "red/green" glasses and 3 dimensional figures. After about 5 minutes my doctor wanted me to switch the red lens from my left eye and put it on the right, and the green lens from my right and put it on my left. Easier said then done. Because of the PMA, I see both positive and negative after images. Well today my positive after images were geared up and after I took off the red/green glasses to switch the lenses, I realized that without the glasses, my left eye was still seeing everything red and my right eye everything green. So I walked around for the next 10 minutes thinking that I was living in Christmas town!
