I went for my retina check today. I was surprisingly nervous. Both my pupils were dilated which was a very strange experience. I’ve been told that I don’t qualify for laser eye surgery as my eye sight is too weak. Apparently the cut off is -6 contact lens strength, and I’m already at -10 and -10,5!
I was also told, quite matter of fact-ly, which I found quite disconcerting, that I will develop cataracts at an early age. That happens to people with my poor site, but then when they do the surgery to fix them, they can then fix my eye sight at the same time. Told as if the last part was a benefit.
There was nothing showing on my retina tests so I am now being sent for a visual field test next week to figure out if the weird dark patch I keep seeing is my mind playing tricks on me, or something wrong with my brain!
Have I mentioned that I don’t particularly like doctors and testing? Especially when it comes to my sight. My biggest fear in the whole world is going blind and all these tests are freaking me out just a little bit.
In other news I went for my teeth cleaning today and I was told that my mouth wasn’t as bad as the dentist had suggested. I have to floss daily and change my toothbrush head and toothpaste to the sensitive ones and I should have better gums in no time. So here’s to no more inflammation caused by iffy gums affecting my pregnancies.
Tomorrow I have one of my fillings repaired and on Monday the other one. And tomorrow is session two with the therapist.
