Sorry about that 46er. I have recently went blind in one eye and it's throwing my reading comprehension off.No seriously.I had a bad virus a few weeks ago and it has attacked my right retina.Don't know yet if it's going to be permanent or not but the central focus area of my right eye is obscured by a big dark area,peripheral is still there but it's really throwing off my depth perception.The joys of old age.

I've found some very interesting aerial photos using Earth Explorer that are not available anywhere else. I've had good luck even going back to the 1940's for aerials. The site has many many options to search however I've had the most luck with the "Aerial Photo Single Frames". https://earthexplorer.usgs.gov/

For example, each of these overlapped images represents a single photo of the Wells Mills Park area. Also, some of the photos while not useful are actually stunningly beautiful.

No apology necessary. ;)

I just had a retinal tear repaired. Had a big floater and went to the doc. You are probably already aware, for serious stuff one of the best eye hospitals in the world is in Philly.

Yes 46er I"ve been to Wills several times ,Thats where I"ve had both retinal reattachments done..just came back from the doctors in marlton.he said it appears to be getting better now that he has three time laps photos to go by.I have to see him again in four weeks unless something happens for the worse.He seems to think this will resolve itself instead of needing surgery or other procedures.

I went to Wills Eye Emergency a week ago early on a Sunday morning. I was cutting metal with a right angle grinder and a small, less than 1mm, piece went into my cornea. After two days of eye washing and rubbing my eyelid to no avail I decided to get it looked at.
The only thing that scared me (more than going into the Big City) was that the Doctor made Doogie Howser look like an old man. He was an MD though and he apparently knew what he was doing. :)

He numbed and dilated my eye and gently stabbed the metal out with the tip of a needle. :eek:
The dilation allowed him to look at my retina and to make sure I had nothing behind my eye. He did an eyelid flip and then firmly swabbed the underside of my eyelid and eye socket. Yee hawww ! That was the most uncomfortable part.

I was given antibiotic drops to use 4 times a day and artificial tears. I followed up with my regular ophthalmologist (a Wills Eye affiliate) last Thursday and all is well. I treat now for glaucoma and see her 4 times per year.

I still feel a slight itchy irritation but it feels worlds better than a week ago. Fortunately, here was no affect on my visual acuity.

Take care of your eyes Al, get the best doctors you can. As I once said to my regular doc, "Vision is not overrated."

I'm pretty sure the tear I had came from a branch snapping back and hitting me in that eye. Hurt like you know what and I immediately thought of 'A Christmas Story' movie. Vision wasn't affected and I waited about a week to get to the doc's. Found out then that I should not have waited. The doc had me in the retina specialists office the next day where the eye was shot by a laser multiple times, strange sensation. Happened in December, no adverse effect so far. The floaters disappeared in about 2 weeks.

I might as well continue the hijack. An old friend of mine was cutting lines for his deer club about 30 years ago and a stick went through his eye. Man, I hate when that happens.
He had an intraocular lens implant performed and it has held up pretty well
