Re: Coronavirus and hosp appts

Similarly a suspected retinal detachment would be a trip to A&E. In addition to keratoconus I am very short sighted so I am naturally concerned about the possibility of retinal detachment. Late last year I did experience some flashing lights in my left eye, not enough to panic me, but enough to ...
