Eye Clinic

Up at the hospital today, this time as a patient. Eye Clinic.

Another noncommittal scan. The same advice as last time, that laser treatment is available. The same reservations. See here if you’re interested

I don’t really like going there, because it is a stark reminder that bit-by-bit, this disease is progressing, and sooner or later it’ll get me. I also get frustrated because nobody will give me a straight answer to the question, “But surely we can measure, or at least monitor, this progression somehow?” Maybe the answer is simply “That’s what we are doing.”, but the one thing I don’t have a handle on is how urgent any of this is. The consultant is happy to tell me all the factors at play (to some degree they’re irrelevant, in the sense that the treatment is already clear) but cannot/won’t give me an idea of the urgency.

Anyway, that was today.
