    I wear contacts.

    Over the last year or so, something strange has happened to my vision.

    I play pocket billiards alot, and I really notice it on the edges of the
    balls. It is like I see a faint outline of the ball to the side of the
    actual ball.

    Seems to be more noticeable when there is a contrast between the objects.
    For example, I see it quite frequently with light colored lettering on dark
    backgrounds on TV.

    For the most part, it is pretty constant, but some times, the ghosting image
    seems to "float" around to different sides of the actual object. (sometimes
    below, sometimes to top left, etc.)

    Any ideas?

    Oh, one other thing that I forgot to mention.

    I have noticed an increase in floaters too and my overall vision just seems
    like it is slighty hazy / blurry.

    Maybe the smoke is drying out your lenses.

    Wouldn't be good to teach the patient some rest method?
    Why don't you teach it?

    If you teach rest methods you will see the condition improving, and by
    improving, the patient can be convinced that he can heal.

    Why not?

    Please answer.

    life for a cause, battling against fate, during many years of
    magnificent struggle, when the unending disappointment finally broke in
    hopeless despair. His torch is still burning. There will come some other
    battler, who is fit, and will hold it high until the people who are
    sitting in darkness have seen its great light."
