Ben's Latest Eye Appointment

Took Ben to the Ophthalmologist this morning.
The doctor said Ben's eye was looking "marginally" better. He told Ben that he had to make the decision to either wait another 6 to 8 weeks to see if it clears up more or to have surgery where they put a "gas" bubble into his eye and suck out the dried blood. That takes about 1 1/2 hours. If they do that, after they do the "gas" bubble, he would have to sit with his head leaning down forward for 5 days then he would go back and they would do the laser treatments like they did on his other eye. Plus he'd be off work for 2 weeks or so. Ben decided to wait the 6 to 8 weeks and if the eye does not clear up on its own by then, they will do the bubble thing.

  1. Sounds like the best thing to do, Kay. I think he is smart to wait it out. That surgery sounds horrible--at least the after-effects... But--if it comes to that, I'm sure he will do it.

    Have a nice weekend.
