A few months ago, I thought that I needed new spectacles so I went to an optometrist who immediately referred me to an ophthalmologist telling me that I had retinal bleeding in the right eye. The opthamologist diagnosed me to have a macular oedema consequent upon a retinal vein blockage and gave me an eye injection. This improved my ( then only slight visual problem in that eye) almost immediately but I subsequently could not then have a second injection a month later as is the normal protocol ( long irrelevant story as to why not - involving an "around the World" trip. ) - this second injection being programmed at the ophthalmologists office for next week , basically 9 weeks after the first injection . This has proved to be a very poor decision (by me) and now I have severe macular oedema - so thick that the Doctor could not get a reading on his "machine" . His shocked look on his face and his statement that "you have a LOT of liquid there!!) said it all. So now I have basically no forward vision from my right eye - although I do have side vision. My left eye is good - but my overall vision is being affected by the right side and I have found it better to place a black tape over the right eye spectacle glass. This reduces the amount of forward distortion I have but allows me to have reasonable peripheral vision on both sides.
I am wondering if there is anyone here who has a good eye and a bad eye - what do you do to cope with this situation. ? Any other comments on my current situation please?
