I am celebrating that I did not need an injection this morning!! I did need to have my eyes dilated, however. I have an appointment scheduled in 3 months, unless I notice a change in my vision. Then I just call and the doctor will see me early.
I feel blessed that I have not needed one in Jan,May, or today. I am also a little apprehensive because once before I went 9 months without needing treatment, then I had to start the sequence again.

I am so happy to hear that you are progressing well. Why is it that you do not need the shots? This is all new to me and I'm trying to understand while coping. Right now, the coping seems to be winning the fight for my time. Sigh. While my CRVO appears to be progressing in the right direction (see the doc for another shot in 2 weeks), my diplopia continues to wrestle with my life. I am pretty dogged and determined when it comes to matters of health, and I have continued to search and find helpful resources. However, I have had to DIG. None of my docs was able to suggest community resources. I am fortunate to live in JAX, FL where there are many resources, and I have worked with an excellent optometrist who specializes in low vision. She has referred me to another low vision specialist for some exercises to work with the muscles. Getting some occupational therapy to help with ADLs is a possibility. We have to keep working and take responsibility for our own health. Happy day to everyone! Sue
