So again I left my house at about 7.00am this morning to get to Paddington for my yearly Diabetes check up at the Western Eye Hospital in London.
I had an early appointment for was for 8.50am so arrived to quite a few people already waiting and took my seat as usual – yes it was hot.
The nurse then puts in dilating drops and anaesthetic drops ready for photos plus a scan (not had before) to be taken at the back of the eye for the consultant which sting like hell. Waiting for the drops to start working for about another 20 minutes and I was then called to have the photos took plus a scan of the eye.
I saw a new consultant who as always was very nice plus asked lots of questions especially about my Diabetes care which I think is pretty good, I did have a Sty on my eye which he said would clear but gave me some gel to help speed up the process.
Much to my relief I was given the all clear by the consultant, I did explain that sometimes I do get some light flashing in my left eye but he said that could be pulling on the retina but nothing to worry about.
So all in all a good day for me – I can’t begging to explain what a massive relief it is for a consultant to say my eyes are stable, I also understand that they would never improve similar to my night vision which does get me down sometimes and certainly restricts me in the winter a lot – I am very lucky as my wife Gill is a great support and understands, even the children know I have problems with my sight – blees.
So now I am sitting in a bar having a quick beer to celebrate at The Mad Bishop and Bear Paddington station before my train home.
As always thanks for reading.
