4 days ago · Retinal Detachment Surgery in Eye Conditions

@mikepa this is exactly the same diagnosis my 91 year old cousin received last fall. I went with her to the optometrist and her story sounds just like yours. Although I do remember her saying it was like a film over one eye (not cataracts, that was already taken care of many years ago). The diagnosis was confirmed by an opthalmologist. It was driving her crazy because she likes to read and it was becoming difficult. In December, her blurry vision had actually improved. I remember the optometrist not being overly concerned and she gave us quite a detailed explanation.

@mikepa I get this occasionally. In my case not retinal detachment (flickering lights, kaleidoscope effect out of corner of one eye). Sometimes related to migraine. Sometimes retinal irritation. The term sometimes used is optical migraine . I, of course, had it checked out because I too was worried about retinal detachment.

I'm in Canada so can't help with the Medicare question.

@mayofeb2020 I have not experienced side effects. Repatha lowered my LDL by 50%. Due for bloodwork f/u in April.
One minor side effect. Sometimes, not everytime, there is some soreness at the injection site but it disappears fairly quickly. Injection is every two weeks and very easy to administer.

Isn't there a Mayo Clinic in Arizona?

The injectable, Repatha, lowers your cholesterol faster than a statin. I know because I'm on it.
