I have always suffered pain after injection, and tried all the usual advice: washing out well, soothing drops etc. (All the advice from the Macular Society). However after the past two injections I have been given a tiny vial of anaesthetic drops to take home that actually worked.
This time however despite asking several timed for my usual tiny vial I have been given just a bottle of Systane balance drops. I was told theses were instead of the anaesthetic drops.
They are VERY POOR substitute!!
Why do you think I have been deprived of my anaesthetic drops? Cost? new NICE guidelines? I was so pleased when my post injection pain problem had finally been solved. NOW though I am back to square one, with streaming painful eye; and VERY disappointed!! How can I get "them" to continue giving me my tiny vial of anaesthetic drops to take home??
I want my anaesthetic drop to take home.
Why do you think I've been deprived. Cost/ new guidelines/ Before I start throwing my weight around I'd like to hear from you. Yes!! I've tried all the usual advice from the Macular Society.
