This morning I had a follow-up appointment with my ophthalmologist. I received a mixture of both encouraging and discouraging news. The good news is that the viral inflammation has settled down. The discouraging news is that I will never be able to wear contact lenses again because they would greatly increase the chance that there would be another flare-up. I certainly don’t need that!! He wrote me a new prescription for both regular and computer glasses. My uncorrected vision has settled at 20/400. That’s considered legally blind. Yikes!! He also told me that there are cataracts but that they aren’t ready to be removed. My next appointment is a year from now.
