Customer Question

Every where I look, especially at a white or light colored surface, I see a regular grid pattern like a piece of graph paper, but the further I am from what I am looking at, the larger the scale of the grid is. The pattern seems to be projected onto what I am looking at and when I look into a concave surface such as a wash bowl the lines seem to follow the contours of the surface. When I try to focus on the lines they move and when I look at the intersection of two lines they disappear. It seems to me that this must be a neurological problem. The ophthalmologists that I have talked to have just said HUH!
