Steroids are good

It seems like the only thing I ever get motivated to post about is my eye. I guess that’s the only thing that’s been going on recently that is noteworthy. Anyways, I had a followup appointment last week to check things out after the injection I had the previous week. My eye seems to really like the steroid. My site went from 20/70 to 20/40 in 7 days, just from the reduction in swelling. There’s always the cataract concern, but that will be alleviated sometime in the not-too-distant future.

I talked with Dr. Saxe about the cataract surgery, and he didn’t feel that it would be an absolute necessity to do it right away, which is probably a good thing. I’ve set up an appointment with another doctor specializing in cataract surgery (who is the same doctor I saw initially at Lansing Opthalmology, coincedentally), and he’ll be able to give me a better run-down of the things involved. In any case, I’m trying to decide whether I would want to do it sooner, or perhaps wait until a warmer time where I could actually enjoy recuperating outside or something. I don’t know… thoughts?
