My right eye which is close to 20/20 passed even without glasses. The other eye did pass with glasses on and just for laughs I tried it without glasses, but could not read anything. My vitreoretinal specialist said to wait until after 3 Avastin injections before changing my prescription on the glasses as I might have some improvement from the injections.
On Thursday this week and part of Friday I had a strange occurrence where I had pulsating light versus dark floaters which coincided with my heart beats. I called the specialist's office and it was decided it was probably due to aura from a migraine condition. I have had a chronic headache for about 3 days now which I thought was due to sinus congestion. But I have had migraines in the past but nothing like this before...the aura I usually get are blind spots in my vision and/or circles with bright lights around them which is nothing like what I had this week. So I am still wondering what these unusual symptoms are due to.
Since the "aura" have gone away my headache has gotten worse and perhaps these are just a different kind of aura I have never had before. My main concern was that these symptoms were only in my right eye which is the one that had the Avastin injection 3 weeks ago.
As Red Buttons used to say: Strange things are happening.
