Technically correct headline--the best kind of correct headline!

Was it the midnight train to Georgia?

I had to look up the Tom Petty lyrics to make sure I had been hearing them correctly.

Well, for once a train really did come from out of nowhere.

As a kid (14-15), I got hit in the face by a toy.  Didn't get the resultant cataract dealt with until I was 32-33.

Had a teardrop shaped pupil for a while.  Three of the muscles that open and close it were damaged, so they opened and closed slower than the others to form a near perfect teardrop.

Is the train okay? Did it make it to the station on time?

Legos. Deadly when stepped on, the pointy corners make for unique pain. Hope her kid doesn't have any legos.

My son, when he was three, tried to assert himself by whipping a oy wheels car at me, hitting the corner of my eye. I then tanned his hide, he never did that again. it was twenty-five years back.

Lots of respectable people have been hit by trains.

For example my sister, or should that be "A løcømøtive ønce hit my sister..."

But actually she did and survived somehow even though the car was destroyed around her.  The coupler hit the back quarter-panel and hit with such force that a T-shirt, wrapped as a gift, exploded out of the wrapped box that it was in.

Though she was badly injured, we still joke about it 28 years later.

I was going to say "Only the dumb or suicidal get hit by a train".  But we are in technically correct territory here, so carry on.

I went to a business training thing in New Orleans about 15 years ago. A group of us (men and women) were in the French Quarter, and decided to go to Larry Flynt's Hustler club because, alcohol. We're sitting at a side stage and I decide to give the dancer a tip. I tuck it into her g-sting, and she comes in for what I thought was going to be a strip-club "brumski", and this woman (who clearly had been in the business for quite a while) winds up and just SMACKS me in the eye with one of her very hard, fake breasts. There were audible gasps around the stage, and I was sent reeling back into my chair. She looks down at her nipple and laughs: "I think I got your contact!" It felt like she had removed my cornea. I had a nice black eye the next day.

A couple months later I went to the optometrist because I was seeing little gray dots in my right eye. He took one look and said, "Yup, you've got a bunch of floaters in there. Have you experienced any eye trauma lately?"

I told him the story, and basically got "yeah, that would do it."

Now, whenever I look at anything that is a light even color, I see little gray floating shapes. This is great because I'm a graphic designer and spend most of my day looking at a screen in minute detail.

Should have sued.

My wife just went through cataract surgery just over a month ago.  She still gets emotional at how clear her vision is now after years of darkness and blurriness in that eye.

Ms Guthrie initially sustained a retinal detachment following the encounter with the train.  The usual treatment is vitrectomy, removing the vitreous and replacing it with a gas (SF6 or C3F8) , then requiring the patient to spend 3-6 weeks face down for ~21 hours a day, during which the gas bubble rises and presses the retina back up against the choroid, which encourages it to re-conform to the shape of the eyeball.  The gas dissipates over time and is replaced by aqueous humor, however the gas often precipitates the formation of cataract. It sounds like she has some visual distortion following the retinal detachment surgery (not unusual) but should get better clarity after the cataract surgery.

Kids are dangerous.

You totally should have. I am also kind of surprised the optometrist didn't refer you to am ophthalmologist to get them removed. Some of them should simply gone away because your eye recycles your vitreous fluid, but if after all these years it hasn't cleared up you you might consider talking to an ophthalmologist about getting a vitrectomy. I had an Ex-girlfriend who had extensive enough floaters that she had to get surgery.
Worked out well for her.  Supposedly there have been some new innovations in this area, but I am not a doctor, and wasn't even very good at playing doctor with the GF, so don't take my word for it.

But did she manage to say "Oh long Johnson" before it hit her?
