    I gave my eye a really bad bang doing DIY a few weeks ago resulting in bright flashes appearing every now and then and loads of stringy floaters. The optician tested me and couldn’t find anything wrong but suggested my symptoms were similar to that of a detached retina and that she was referring me to the hospital as they have better equipment that could check properly.

    I called the hospital as I hadn’t heard anything from them only to be told it would be 50 weeks before I could be seen, no pun intended.

    The only person who got all his work done by Friday was Robinson Crusoe.

    @Brydo It’s fair to point out that the symptoms you describe are very similar to migraine head aches. However, still get it checked out even if it takes fifty weeks.

    Got a call from optician saying she called the hospital and asked for a appointment sooner. She is calling them again on Friday to see if they have sorted a closer appointment.

    Visited the hospital for my eye appointment, seemingly I have a problem with the gell in my eye pulling on my retina. I’ve to see what happens over the next month or so and to go back if my problems persist.

    Strangely enough the doctors name was Iris I wonder if she was the top pupil at uni lol.
