Third Retinologist Visit in Three Weeks.

Yesterday saw my third visit to the retinologist in three weeks.

This time I went for a follow up on last weeks laser treatment and OCT scan.

The OCT showed swelling behind the left retina like Mount Everest.  No wonder for over a week I had not been able to see to complete even the simplest of tasks.

The laser treatment was healing nicely and my retinologist decided to go ahead with an injection of Lucentis to deal with the swelling.

As usual the injection was over quickly.

Anyone out there facing their first injection into the eye, DO'NT worry about it at all. It is not as bad as it seems. Actually it is worse for anyone observing so don't take anyone squimish into the room with you.
