Dilation and Discovery of a Retinal Hole

    I initially had a new floater that was pretty noticeable in my left
    eye. I went to my general eye doctor and he said the retina looked ok,
    but when taking a more detailed look he said there was something
    suspicious. I was referred to a retinal specialist and he said my left
    eye was fine, but checked my right eye and said there was a small hole
    and he repaired it within minutes and I was out of the office. It was
    quite an easy, non-invasive procedure. The nurse of the retinal
    specialist dilated my eye about 10 minutes before the doctor examined
    my eyes and performed the procedure. I know that when the eyes are
    dilated your vision becomes blurred, but my vision did not seem that
    blurry at the time my eyes were checked by the doctor. Would the
    doctor have done the retinal exam and subsequent laser treatmemt if my
    eyes were not dilated enough? How would I have an effective analysis
    of my eyes if the eyes were not dilated enough? This doctor has an
    fine reputation.

    My eyes have been dilated many times and frequently dialation takes
    only 10 minutes. Usually the Doc will know if they are dilated
    enough. For example, one time I went back after just a few mins, the
    doc took a quick look and said "lets wait a few more minutes". I
    don't know for sure, but I would be really suprized if the dialation
    was not sufficient to reveal the entire eye.

    I went through a very similar experience to you in the spring. Except
    I had 2 very small holes in the left eye and 1 small horseshoe shaped
    tear in the right eye.

  3. This and other doctors simply cheat you.

    I know I am saying dreadful things, but most of the medical procedures
    nowadays are just making money cheats to the poor gullible who is
    programmed to trust these people since birth.

    But you deserve what you get.

    You go to the doctors, he gives you medicines.

    If he did not give you medicine, you would have complained to him.

    It's simple psychology of the idiot-man.

    If the doctors keep this kind of business inside reasonable limits,
    everything works well.

    But sometimes the greed for money pushes things too hard.

    For example, in Italy, we have a strange system.

    All the professions have a "national job contract" which fixes fees.

    Physicians last year went on strike because the government was not for
    renewal of expired contract.

    There was great quarrel, then they settled down in a new contract.

    What was the result next year?

    Physicians just retaliated, prescribing 15% more drugs to people.

    Since drugs are mostly Region-payed, the Regional balance in Lombardia
    went closely to bankrupt for the high prices it had to pay for the

    What to do?

    Do you think people got ill 15% more just out of the contempt of God?

    No, just doctors went on to prescribe more, mostly useless things
    people has always been asking for since years.

    I won't trust doctors, except very rare people who have no vested
    interests in the business. These people are rare but do exist. But
    you have to be a little more intelligent to find them around you.
    They are not in evidence, somehow they must protect themselves from
    the mob. You need keen eyes to catch them.

    That is a very strange, convoluted answer. I know what you are getting
    at which makes some sense, but all I asked about was eye dilation my

    It does make sense indeed, my friend.

    So for example, if you are highly myopic and you may have a retinal
    tear and risk losing your eye sight...what do you do...ignore it?
    Sorry, you don't make sense.

  7. So for example, if you are highly myopic and you may have a retinal
    You are highly myopic because you followed the accepted theories and
    ideas of criminal men like our MT.

    If you were more intelligent, you would have refused glasses at
    inception and searched for a better way to cure your problem.

    Your question does not make sense.

    You should have questioned before, not after the damage is done.

    Anyway, there are pages published by Dr. Bates in the Twenties that
    explain how some cures of detachment of the retina have been effected
    by rest treatments.

    The fact that you may not have the intelligence to understand how this
    could be accomplished does not mean that it cannot be accomplished.

    Discard the accepted theories.

    They are useless as far as your true cure is concerned.

    This is a confederacy of dunces.

    Have you heard of a genetic disposition to myopia? How do you refuse
    glasses when you are 7 years old? I tried Bates method years ago with
    no success. Go back to your cave.

  9. Have you heard of a genetic disposition to myopia? How do you refuse

    I understand you.
    I too had tried Bates in 1989 and got a flash of perfect sight after
    some months but nothing much after that.

    Then in 2002 I got his own original book and everything changes.

    I invite you to come out of your cave and give one more chance to the
    original Dr. Bates work.

    By the way, Dr. Bates discovered the cure of his own presbyopia by
    imagining little men walking into black virtual caves he was seeing on
    a magazine painted of black.

    Perhaps your reference to the cave may be an omen for your own cure.

    Why not.

    I'll give the Bates method another try. Thanks.
