Retinal Vein Occlusion
I’ve just been diagnosed with Retinal Vein Occlusion by the Ophthomologist who treats my glaucoma. I see the Retinal Specialist in four days and have been put on Prednisone every two hours to reduce the inflammation. I don’t really know what I will be dealing with – central or branch – nor the extent of the damage. My symptom was sudden blurriness over a period of about 3 weeks. In December, 2018 I had tube shunt surgery in my affected (left) eye which was successful in reducing the pressure; however, it left me with diplopia. Corrective (prism) lenses were helping until this blurriness occurred. This post is premature because I don’t know exactly what I’m dealing with. However, my anxiety level is moderately high, and I would appreciate any comments from people who have dealt with this and gone through the process. Thank you!
