#1 - My symptoms were poor vision, or at least I knew something was happening
and blamed it on my new glasses Rx. I thought they did it wrong.

#2 - My vision *went* from 20/50 to 20/400 in three weeks time!!!

#3 - My opthalmologist referred me to a vitreologist. I think if your present
*eye* person would make the appointment for you, you could get in stat. This
is something you really don't want to wait on. I had to quit driving for 8
months. YMMV (~_^)
