Left wet. Right???

Prognosis or Current State of
I have a blind spot (central vision) in the left eye and permanent floaters in both eyes.
Impact on My Life
So far, the impact has been mostly emotional. I can still see pretty well, drive, work and read. As with everyone else, the impact has mostly been worry about what is going to happen and when it is going to happen.
I think I'm developing more faith in God, and also realizing what a wonderful husband and family I have.
Screens on computers. I don't like to drive after dark, but then I never did like that.
I'm a school librarian (grades 5-12). My principal has been very supportive.
