Next Retinologist Visit Tomorrow

Tomorrow sees another visit to my retinologist.

It is now five weeks since my last visit and the discovery of the dead area of retina in my left eye.

The last injection of Lucentis at that visit five weeks ago did nothing for my vision in the left eye. It has remained almost completely black apart from periods of bright flashes of what appear to be lights, but from experience with my right eye I think these are mere halucinations as nerves fire off in the brain or optic nerve.

Tomorrow I am due for another injection of Lucentis or Avastin, I am considering saying that these should end now. 

The retinologist may want to treat the eye with laser. It won't bring back vision. Just stop some swelling later.

Things to think about today, are all about surrendering this fight.
