Just a curious question...
I've been having a recurrant eye problem for the last year and a half. The long and the short of it is that I'm having the same area of my cornea in my left eye "erode" in several distinct craters. It's happened four times now, with each time requiring a couple of weeks wearing a contact lens bandage and being blind for a bit. As per my normal bad luck, it always happens right at the worst time(It never rains when I'm blind! I'm considering posting up here when it happens, so people will know they can plan to do lots of riding. For a large fee, I'm even willing to allow people to jam a thumb in my eye to ensure a rain free two week vacation).
A couple of opthamologists have looked at it and they can see what's happened, but are at a loss to explain it. To paraphrase them both, "Eyes don't do this without some kind of trauma".
I was chatting with my Dad today and while he was researching for one of his cases(He's a criminal lawyer)he was reading over the RCMP laser policies. He noted that they are prohibited from using the lasers on motorcycle riders, likely due to the obvious eyesight risks in aiming a laser at a human being. He wants me to ask my doctor next time I see him about the possibility of this being laser damage.
Anybody have any insights or thoughts on this?
