23474Re: [SCA-Archery] Help with scary vision thing. - Thanks
- Sep 13, 2007I'd like to thank everyone who's replied on and off list.
I guess the consensus is:
1. Calm down and don't panic
2. It could be fatigue (my glasses & script are less than 6 mo old
and I've been shooting with them all along.)
3. See a Doc ASAP.
It won't be in time for King's Company this weekend, but I'm hoping
things won't be too bad.
Thanks to all.
