Hello, I want to share my experience of Retinal Vein Occlusion. I was diagnosed with this 3 years ago, realizing that had blurred vision in my left eye. Since diagnosis, I have undergone 28 injections, every 6 weeks over a 3 year period. 12 weeks ago my consultant informed me that the injections were not working and there was a decline in my sight. I could have one more injection but after that i could be offered steroid implants. It was at that point i was looking up forums of other people who were suffering the same as me. I came across a chat from a gentlemen who had decided to stop treatment altogether. So from that moment, I decided enough was enough and I too was going to stop all treatment, don't get me wrong, my sight is bad, I scored 30 letters. Anyway i discussed this with my consultant , said i did not want the last injection, what is the point after all if its not working? He made me an appointment 6 weeks later, so I have gone 12 weeks without an injection, normally i cannot get past 6 without my sight getting worse. Today I had my appointment, my sight is bad, yeah, but my life is really not affected; i can work, i can drive, ok so i miss my glass sometimes, but apart from that it is the best decision and I still feel it is the right one. I wanted to share my story with you all who is setting out on the journey of having injections and to say, it is not the end of the world not to have treatment, I will carry on living my life as usual and accept my symptoms, just make allowances for it. I kindly thanked my consultant for his determination but happily said i hope I never have to see him again for the rest of my life, he smiled and said me too.
