Just back from a visit to the eye hospital, where they've been assessing some slight distortion in vision in my left eye, basically the retina is creased slightly due to cell growth. The good news is that it's minor and harmless; the bad news is that fixing it would require serious surgery, more invasive than e.g. cataracts, and just isn't worth it - there might be a minor improvement but it's almost as likely things would end up worse. If it gets a lot worse they will re-assess it, but if anything I think it's slightly better than it was a couple of years ago, or at least I've adapted to it to some extent.

Currently my eyes look like this due to eye drops:

That's from the last time I had a serious eye exam, three or four years ago.

I'm trying to think of things that might help with this, and the one I keep coming back to is to get a pair of medium distance glasses for reading and computer use, rather than wearing varifocals all the time. That way I won't have to move my head so much for optimum focus. Anyone got any idea if this is likely to help?
