|Dark places are histo spots|
I saw the opthamologist on Thursday and, after triple dilating my eyes, he immediately sent me to a retina specialist. Although he didn't tell me what he thought was going on, preferring to let the retina specialist diagnose me, I heard the nurses calling to make the referral for "choroidretinis." They had to spell it several times since neither was familiar with the term. My appointment was for 9:00 a.m. the following morning, just enough time to go freak out and search the internet.

|OCT scan of normal retina thickness|
|OCT scan of histo lesion|
So. . . the diagnosis is that the histoplasmosis seems to have reactivated after more than 30 years. The new lesion is not on the periphery like the others, but closer to the macula which is responsible for centralized, high-resolution vision.
