This afternoon I have an appointment at #Southampton_Hospital_Eye_Unit to review my last operation. The current situation is that my left eye irritates as if were full of fine gravel, but is giving the sort of vision where I can make out individual vehicles parked in our road, but only as coloured vehicles. I can’t really make out a 4×4 from a delivery van.
Unfortunately the combination of one good eye and one bad eye results in a confused interpretation of my environment. As an example I have to be very careful descending stairs.
I have loads of wargame models to paint, but with effectively no binocular vision I cannot accurately put a paintbrush into a paint pot, let alone doing any detail painting.
Looking forward to having the oil bubble (keeping my retina in place) removed and getting back to a somewhat normal life. I have had to rely on my wife to drive me about, mainly to and from the hospital which is 40 miles away.
Meanwhile, in an effort to environmentally compensate for the increased use of our two cars for hospital journeys I have bought two bicycles and a dog trailer for local use.
One thought on “Why I can’t make progress”
I have another four weeks of this before my next review.
Four more different types of eye-drops to administer several times a day.
Maybe it will all be over by Christmas?
