I meant to post yesterday but after developing a migraine on Friday had a muggy head most of yesterday.
Friday's appointment started in the usual way - do the pinholes help you read more (this for the eye I cannot see out of), these drops will sting, we will now check the pressures (despite doing this just over a month ago), etc. They have a new instrument of torture to measure pressures. It's like a super biro - it comes close to your eye and then touches it? I kept flinching! Whilst the puff of air can take you by surprise the sensation that you are going to be picked in the eye is just horrible (there is no other word for it).
Twenty minutes later I saw the consultant from Moorfield. He was the sort of person that inspires confidence. He had a good look - it was the brightest light I can ever recall (probably shone out of my ears
). Anyway it confirmed there is a lot of blood there including one dense mass. The next step is a pre-op at Moorfield (they want reports from my cardiac surgeon and the anesthesist). All being well he hopes to carry out the vitrectomy before Christmas. He stuck me as a man of his word! So fingers crossed!
