My injections

Hi all had my eighth injection in my left eye & my third in my right eye last Thursday the doctor at watford general hospital who did the injections said as this was the third injection in my right eye if I wait a couple of weeks I could go to my opticians to get some new lenses the ones I have are only about 9months old but my distance glasses everything is blurred and my reading glasses I have to use a strong magnifying glass and bright light to the rear of my right shoulder he also informed me my left eye is gradually getting better hopefully may only need a few more injections in my left fingers crossed

  • I don't know how spotty got on there should be

    Sorry to hear that's macular for you

  • Hi algee. That sounds very promising. So glad for you. It is always good to hear some positive news once in a while to give us all some hope, although I suppose it all depends on each individual's eye condition. I hope all goes well for you and if your new specs, if you get them, are working for you.

  • Hi Algee. Positive news is always good to hear. Thank you for sharing. I was hoping for a miraculous instant recovery after my first injection a week ago. I wake every morning and check if I can see any better than when I went to sleep. I must stop closing my good eye all the time at work. People will think I am winking at them.

  • Great news Algee x

    Yep, worth getting new specs if you can afford them (my Dr told me not to bother for a year but I ignored and glad I got new ones).

    I got reactolite ones which saved having to get prescription sunglasses too. FYI I got mine from asda opticians, very good reaction time and good value (same optician who spotted my eye prob).

    Have you seen the self adjustable specs? They are about £80 online. You can adjust each eye separately. Obviously not varifocal each lens so would have to adjust for near or far but I am thinking about getting a pair for reading whilst my vision is still not stable, just got to check the prescription range they cover.

  • Hi everyone thanks for all your replies good to hear from people I've had dry macular for about 11yrs the last 18months it's been wet on top of that after a blood test about 2wks ago my G.P. Tells me my sugar is slightly raised indicating I may be heading for type 2 diabetis have to have eye screening in a special clinic and put on one tablet a day and start changing my diet agh well win some lose some

  • good that you have the warning re diabetes as you can eat differently and head off any extra eye issues. Hope all goes well- I've had excellent help on here re injections which start on Feb 10th, all quite scary!!
