We've been pretty quiet for a while but we do keep up with Posts on the Forum. We are now 7 months on from the first of 3 Eylea Injections and what's happening now?
We have appointments at the Eye Clinic monthly and have seen 4 different Consultants. We are in a routine with the first Appointment slot of the day and that works well for us, less waiting around and staff are fresh for a new day. We have seen the same Consultant for 3 appointments and so feel there is some continuity.
Mr Smilers vision is less clear in the morning and that clears within a couple of hours leaving a small amount of distortion. Vision has returned from pretty much nil to 80% in the affected left eye from the RVO. The first injection worked really well and 2 subsequent ones have maybe kept progress steady. There has been just the one huge floater and 2 cysts which all cleared along the way. At this weeks appointment sight was still at 80% and there was a new cyst with a small amount of fluid buildup. Mr Smiler is therefore on notice for a 4th Eylea Injection in 3 weeks time, having been told by the Consultant that the latest thinking for his condition is 4 not 3 injections.
We pass on our support to everyone on the Forum currently undergoing treatment and remain positive that sight is such a precious thing if some can be restored.
Bye now from The Smilers
