I haven't posted for a while and thought I would let you know how things are progressing. After the doctor said he was not happy with my progress and was considering changing the Eyelea to something else, nothing has changed. On my next visit I was told no injection needed this time - great! On a recent visit to my GP, I asked if the hospital kept her informed about my eyes. She said yes and we had a little chat about how things were. My hearing aids are not perfect and I don't catch everything. She asked if I would like her to find out the statistics, not sure what, but I said yes. A couple of hours later she phoned me to say she had spoken to the consultant at the hospital. He said the AMD had been detected early and I was in the top group of people who would most benefit from the injections. I was so impressed with such great service from my new GP.
Last week I had injections in both eyes. I asked the injecting doctor if she could go easy on the iodine as I thought it was responsible for giving me such bad after effects. She turned out to be the best I have had yet. She went easy on the iodine and told me everything she was doing - in a lovely clear voice! I had almost no after effects to speak of. I was also pleased that she did both eyes at the same time, instead of having to go back to the waiting room and going through all the performance of getting settled on the bed again.
I'm feeling very fortunate at the moment - great new GP and super efficient injection doctor.
