I finally decided that it is time for me to have FOV. I've waited for over 3 years with these floaters and they aren't getting any better. In my right eye especially, the floater is interfering with my day to day activities of working on the computer. And I made the decision to schedule an appointment with Dr. Charles, with the examination on Jan. 6, and surgery on the 7th. This was not an easy decision to make, since I am all too aware of the possible complications, and also the high costs of the surgery. Fortunately my parents have agreed to pay half of the costs. I will try to post from an Internet cafe after my surgery. I plan on staying in Memphis for 5 days after the surgery just in case something goes wrong, and going on vacation to Key West after that. Fortunately here in Russia everyone has free vacation from Jan. 1 to Jan 10th due to New Year's and Christmass holidays. And I plan on taking an additional 2 weeks extra vacation after that.
