I’m off to get the second treatment for my left eye. It’s an injection into the vitreous humor to halt and/or reverse wet macular degeneration.
I experienced significant improvement after the first treatment, so I’m very optimistic. However, the process is unpleasant, and will sideline me for most of the day.
With luck I should be able to post the news feed tonight. But I’m not sure if there will anything else before tomorrow.
Update: I got home a little while ago, but took a rest with both eyes covered before attempting anything as strenuous as looking at a computer monitor.
Everything went according to plan, and the new scans confirm the easing of my condition brought about by the first treatment. The doctor is optimistic about my prospects for additional improvement.
It’s a grueling experience, but somehow didn’t seem as bad as last month, probably because I was familiar with the drill, and knew exactly what to expect. A needle in the eye isn’t my idea of fun, but it beats the heck out of the symptoms of macular degeneration.
Many thanks for your good wishes. There will be more posts later this evening.
