Default My Eye Issues

I decided to go back to my opthalmologist and see once and for all if I've done everything possible to insure I see as well as I'm going to see.

Well bad news is, I'm not going to see any better, although she did give me a prescription that has a small correction, says it may give me a little bit of help. The damage to my eyes is permanent. So anything done for my eyes from here on out is the perserve what I have left.

She says that the eye injections will help, but I can't have that at this point because of the heart attack. Not sure how far into the future I will be facing that. At this point, I will do whatever I need to do, because just this little bit of eye vision loss is driving me crazy. At least I don't have to go to the retina specialist for another 4 months.

Not sure what I'm going to do when i can't see the computer. I guess that's the least of my worries. I hope my grand daughter grows up before I totally lose my sight.

Well then, we're hoping for a quick release from your cardiologist that your heart is healed enough to get the injections. (((((Roxanne)))))
