This afternoon I had a follow-up visit with my ophthalmologist, along with my annual refraction. There was not enough of a change in my eyeglass prescription to warrant getting new lenses. That was a relief. Less exciting is that he wants me to continue taking the antiviral drug and eye drops for the infection in my left eye. It hasn’t totally settled down. My vision in that eye isn’t any worse, though, so that’s a definite plus. He also said that it is time to remove my cataracts. He wants to see me again in three months and then, if the left eye is behaving itself, he will remove the right cataract first and then remove the left one a month later.
