...dry eyes started three years ago..
about the same time that any point light source had
a halo around it.
[car lights, stop lights..streetlights..nightlights..
tiny led lights in electronic equipment]
..multiple eye exams..."oh..you have dry eye syndrome..have
some drops". eyes/mouth went severely dry for several months..awake every hour to drink..put in more eyedrops.
[..numbness all over..severe pain in leg nerves..lots of
assorted fun..one doc telling me I must have MS..I bring up the possibility of "microbes", say..possible
bacteria as a possibility...he rudely dresses me down for suggesting the
"most unlikely reasons". [?moi?..HE's the one that jumped to Multiple Sclerosis..on the basis of NO tests at all!
What godlike powers he has../end rant]
..meanwhile back at the ranch..
eye surgeon: [twice in a year]..just a few floaters..no
thanks doc..glad that you were paying attention to the
fact that the "floaters" are all curly fungal things..
and not just random bits of vitreous debris. I can light them up with a hand held camera..very obvious they are..
why cant you see that they are wiry FUNGAL tangles? I can.
i suspect the doc is too busy to get involved with investigating how the heck fungal rhizoids are growing
in my eyes..after all he is shuffling folks thru
his office 2 or 3 simultaneously. Still.. If I can see them by looking out..how the heck
can you miss them looking IN..with the pupils dilated..and with the slit lamp and the nifty ZEISS magnification optics?..
I have discovered the source of the "halo's"..when I use
my microscope and shift to high magnification [anything over 100x] i can clearly see the images of hyphal candida
colonies swimming about..well..not swimming..but swirling
about when i move my eyes in the slightest. very distracting...it's a fungal soup. makes it very difficult to see what i am trying to observe thru the microscope..hard enough that i mostly shovel the view into a camera mounted on the scope and throw it on the computer monitor..so i don't have to sort out the object i am trying to see from all the crap in my eyes..
*high mag requires higher light intensity from the tungsten
light source in the scope..the brighter the light..the more reflects off the microscopic life in the eye..light scatters..aha!..so THAT'S where the halos are coming from..
internal reflection/refraction off the fungals.
*worst part is when the eyes get totally night adapted..
becoming about 10,000 times more sensitive to light..
in near total darkness..with just a few photons/second
coming thru the eyes..i can see THEM..swirling..moving..
seeming to grOW in the darkness as they move closer..or farther? from the retina. Very creepy. I now no longer
sleep in the dark. I ALWAYS have at least a bright night
light on..just to keep the ambient light levels up..so THEY are not so intrusive...the light washes out the contrast.. I see only a dim film..not..fungus..
.and i can sleep easier. [for now..]
..but the good eye surgeon does not hear a word i say.
he cant see what i see. I am seeing the shadowy image of the hyphal form of the fungus magnified many times...very near the retina.. I showed the good eye surgeon a picture of candida in the hyphal form..it's basically an exact match..except the size of critters in the picture is a bit
larger than what i see..suspect the camera used was appx
1,500 X..very nice picture actually...
pity I cant photograph the image that appears in the light
reflected from my scope optics..unfortunately..it only
"appears" on my retina.
[and the good doctor no doubt has my record marked as
"loon"./Delusions of Parasitosis.]
