What happens normally to everyone at about age 60-70 is the vitreous sac completely detaches from the retina. in my case, due to a bit more myopia than the normal nearsighted person, the vitreous decided to detach a little early, and not completely as happens to most people, so instead, it has only partially detached, thus tearing at the retinal wall, creating a spot of tension. That spot apparently decided to tear away, and, of course, there was a tiny vein that was across the tear and subsequently ruptured sending A LOT of blood into my eye ball. weird. The blood will take a month or so to go away. i know more about the eye now than i want to.
This had nothing to do with a crash, driving, loving aaron the wrong way or anything . . . just my bad.
