I'm Not Blind Yet

Today I had my optometry appointment.  I will have to do a follow up for a field of vision test and photographs of my eyes but other than that I'm done for the year.  Too bad the soonest I can get in for the other two eye exams will be late January 2014.

My eyes aren't any worse then last year.  The doctor decided to lessen my contact lens prescription and I am quite happy with the new lenses.

I don't need bifocals.  As a matter of fact the doctor was pleasantly surprised to find the star shaped thingy, not recalling what it is, is still star shaped in my eyes as most people my age have it almost gone by now to an almost unrecognizable shape.

I saw Dr. Chow on the way into the hospital today.  He was happy to see me outside of the office.  So I had interactions with two different doctors that went well today.  Must be that lady doctor last week just had something against me.

I have stage one Papilledema. I'm not too worried about it since it is only stage one.  Kind of goes with the Non-disc drusen or was it just disc drusen he called it.  Well anyway I've got many more years before the two little blind spots in the left eye will most likely be added to.  Of course I'll still get the field of vision test done in January like he wants.  It really isn't that hard on me to get it done.


  1. Yay for no worsening of blindness! That's what I am always hoping for!

  2. Glad your eyesight is the same as last year! I know that is always a relief for me.

  3. Glad the appointment went well, and you had good encounters with doctors for once!

  4. That's great, glad you got good news.
