ONE eye in the kitchen?!?

kseiverd | Dec 13, 201408:24 AM     9

Woke up, little over a week ago, with absolutely ZERO vision in left eye!?! After better part of 2 days in hospital and MANY tests, nothing showed anything that gave doctors any real "concern"?? Sent home with "no restrictions"?? NO stroke, odd things in head, presence of brain confirmed, nothing to confirm what diagnosis is... so far... retinal artery occlusion. Heading to a retina specialist on Monday for yet another test. Vision is "improved" to the point where it's no longer BLACK but worse than navigating with only one contact in??

Needless to say, a bit hobbled in kitchen. Though always try to be careful with knives or other sharp objects, have to be EXTRA so now. Depth perception is obviously a bit off.
