Well the letter related to my treatment (and the copy to me) arrived very quickly this time. It was the total opposite of the previous one and said  "The above patient received laser treatment on the 2nd November" and nothing more. Definitely to the point!

Well back to ophthalmology yesterday. I was quite worried as the previous person gave the impression of leaving more treatment for next time and I have had quite a few odd floaters. This time I saw yet another person who I subsequently found out was the ophthalmology lead. It appears there is some detritus from the previous heavy bleed and subsequent. But the feeling was there was no need for further laser at this stage. Back in four months. And for a change I was in and out within 45 minutes complete with follow up appoinment. Gave me pleant of time to relax with a Costly coffee whilst my eyes settled - it seem to take longer these days but for some reason they put in two set of stinging drops. And yes I was told that they sting even after saying I have had these regularly for decades!
