Thread: Fiesta Bowl....

    Default Re: Fiesta Bowl....

    I applaud this young man’s bravery. I hope he has no further issues. I have a very slight detached retina in my right eye. It presents along the very far right edge of my field of vision and the only symptom I have is a very slight but distinct strobe-like series of light flashes when darkness falls. Doc says it is a common occurrence when one reaches a “certain” age, or suffers trauma.

    Doc, what does it technically mean to be “legally blind”?
    Ever devoted to the twin causes of reason and justice . . . ever at risk of waxing verbose

    good question

    and technically the phrase “legally blind IN THAT EYE” is incorrect but it is used so often that it’s kind of accepted
    kind of like the phrase “Legally blind WITHOUT MY GLASSES “
    which is also used a lot

    Legal Blindness is defined as

    Corrected vision worse than 20/200 in the BETTER seeing eye
    or a field of vision less than 10 degrees

    so you can see why those phrases are technically incorrect
    because by definition it says CORRECTED and BETTER SEEING EYE

    I jokingly tell my patients that it’s like saying “I swim really well when there’s no water!”

    Again I obviously can’t comment on any specifics regarding Drew’s prescription, vision or correction

    That stuff has come a long way.

    I know a couple folks who had it done in the early days. Wear coke bottle glasses now
