I had my second eylea injection yesterday. And what a different experience this was from my first one! As so many of you had advised me to tell the clinic of the painful experience I had during the first injection the clinic took it onboard.
First of all, I was given two aenestetic drops instead of one before even entering the sterile room.
Secondly, once in the sterile room, more drops were instilled into my eye and not just repeatedly in one place of my eye ball as was the case with my first injection but in several places. At the point of injection I just felt a tiny scratch, so insignificant that it did not even make me flinch.
Thirdly, it was a different doctor who performed the injection.
As one would expect my eye felt very sore all day yesterday, but what I had not experienced with my first injection was two large coat button-sized black discs in my lower peripheral vision. When I looked up they flipped one above the other. Has anyone else had this experience?
Today only one black disc remains and my eye hardly feels sore.
