Ancient and modern eye care in the North End by David | Aug 27, 2013 | culture, urbanism | 1 comment The older you get The more floaters you will see Feast of Saint Lucy Opthamologist For some, Santa Lucia Or Warby Parker 1 Comment Cambridge Chuck on September 1, 2013 at 6:33 pm My retina specialist — Dr. Lucy (no kidding) Young at Mass Eye & Ear — told me the same thing. She also said, “Your body is a symmetrical organ, so the floaters that just appeared in your left eye will probably appear in your right eye within a year.” She was, sadly, correct. “But your brain will adjust and you’ll get used to them pretty quickly, so no surgery required.” At the I insisted she was wrong, but six months later she was, again but happily, correct. Next time I’m going to ask what happens when a retina specialist gets floaters! Do they have to retire?? Reply Submit a Comment Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
