I posted a journal
late last year about having problems with my vision. I had a fair few appointments with my opthalmologist, but after being referred to a specialist consultant, I had some pretty shitty news delivered!
I've been diagnosed with chronic retinal detachment in both my goddamn eyes, for which I need surgery for. The retina in my right eye has a number of small holes which is allowing vitreous to seep through behind it, pushing the retina away from the back of my eye. This can be treated with a special type of laser treatment called cryoprexy, which freezes the holes closed to stop anymore fluid seeping behind the retina. Unfortunately, my left eye also needs a sceral buckle putting in place to close the gap between the detached part of the retina and the outer layer of my eye.
I'm booked in for surgery on the 10th March, and it could take up to 2-3 months for my vision to go back to normal (primarily in my left eye). I'm not looking forward to it, but it's something that has to be done. Going to have to take it in my stride! God, just pray it all goes smoothly... ffff.
