    Hi. I have recently begun to experience an occasional visual anomaly.
    The anomaly is that I see things as if my field of vision is covered
    with a very fine mesh completely filled with tiny circular holes. By
    fine, I mean that, say, my computer screen at normal viewing distance
    would be covered with thousands of these little holes. The "mesh
    material" is transparent so I can still see, but things are a bit
    blurry, the blurriness being at the rims of each of the countless fine
    circles.

    It's as if, rather than seeing the images before me as a whole, I
    become aware of all of my vision receptors, the tiny little bits
    making up the field of vision. It makes it a bit distracting to read.

    This phenomenon only occurs when I'm fatigued, usually in the evening
    after a hard day's work in front of the computer screen. It doesn't
    occur every day, and goes away if I rest a bit. I'm not too concerned,
    as I just attribute it to tiredness, but would like to know if anyone
    has heard of such symptoms before.

    I'm nearly 50, in good shape, have worn glasses for most of my life,
    have had my vision checked within the past year, blood pressure
    slightly lower than normal. I've read up on macular degeneration but
    my symptoms don't seem to match that ailment at all, thank Heaven.

    - Jay.

    That sounds a bit like a detached retina which is what I had before a
    tumour was diagnosed. Go see an eye specialist and get it checked
    out.
