Some of you may remember me posting a while ago that I was having problems with my eyes in as much as I had a black shutter come over them with my eyes still open. I was also experiencing blurred vision. Well at long last I have been to see the Eye Specialist and she seems to think I may have Amourosis Fugax. Well she showed me on the photograph of the back of my eyes and it is to do with the arteries of the eyes having a stenosis. I know what that means as I have spinal stenosis. The arteries in the eyes are narrowing and when they close together then you experience the shutter coming down over your eyes. She pointed out about 5 areas over the eye. I have to now go to my GP who will need to check my cholesterol and have a check for Diabetes. The blurriness she said is probably the pregablin, but she suggested that instead of reading with my varifocals get a plain lens pair for close work.
My GP has to decide after getting back my blood test results whether to go further and have an MRI scan. i think you have to tick 3 boxes out a about 7 then you have the MRI test. I couldn't see all of them but one is that you are over 65, high cholesterol , diabetes and high blood pressure, I couldn't read the rest. My Blood pressure was ok at 133/71 when she took it at the hospital and I have pills for that anyway so not sure if it applies that I have high blood pressure because it is under control.
Just going to book another eye test as she instructed and get myself a cheap pair of reading glasses.
Blood tests tomorrow and Doctors next week.
Wish me luck
