Renewed driver's license with no problem...

Saturday, May 11, 2013

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.

    It's wonderful that you got your license okay. I get those blinding headaches with the lighting effects almost blinding me, but it is always accompanied by weakness, headache, sweating and the shakes. And it is when my blood sugar level is critcally low. If I overstrain my eyes since the cateracts were removed and the lens in both eyes replaced, I get a strange filmy effect with little black spots with a line from them. My eye specialist says it is because when my eyes get tired I am seeing the blood leakage that has occured in my eyes before, which is an after effect of the mild retinopathy I have. Its good you are checking in with a professional as it could be from several causes. Hope it clears up soon!
