Thought you'd find this interesting!1 After being told to go to Moorfields A and E by their advice line staff, I waited for hours- until the last train home from London and had to leave A and E with out being seen.
Totally exhausted last night and thought maybe I needn't bother as things seem to have settled somewhat- dull pain , not the severe pain I described before .This morning, however, I returned to a more sensible frame of mind and took myself off for another 5 hour wait.
This time it was well worth it- I described the extreme pain as soon as the anaesthetic drops wore off, and what had happened since. The doctor put some of the yellow drops in my eye and diagnosed 2 small corneal abrasions- and he has given me a discharge letter saying these might be due to the speculum used for the injection ( I had recounted what happened and that I thought this was the cause)
He prescribed Choramphenicol ointment- rather than drops, and I think this will stay in place for much longer.
I was able to ask him all sorts about BVRO and future- e.g. effect on cataract ops and other matters- very pleased with a excellent appointment- pity the staffing can't match demand at present.
I feel pleased to have the letter which I will take to my next injection appointment and ask for extra care when they insert the speculum
