Changing my eye colour

I have to wear contact lenses or I can't see a thing. I spent a lot of time making sure the contact lenses were hard to detect, but recently I've started getting some tinted contact lenses. It's actually really cool that I can make subtle shifts in my eye colour. It's funny when I see that people can tell there is something a bit funny or different with my appearance and they can't always tell what has changed. My optometrist is great about showing me new products and ideas that come out that might suit my prescription because he knows I'm always up for new things.

Could You have CMV Retinitis?

CMV (cytomegalovirus) retinitis is an eye condition that anyone can develop, but those with a weakened immune system are more likely to develop it than the general population. It's a type of viral infection that can alter your vision by causing inflammation and cell debris to develop around the retina. The retina receives light from the front of your eye and transmits signals to your brain to allow images to be processed, so CMV retinitis can interfere with this pathway and lead to processed images being skewed.
