Since my last visit, my right eye has gone from 20/100 to 20/70, while the left eye stayed at 20/30. My color vision (what I call “static”) is still not great, but doc says it’s one of the last things to return. He did remind me that the fact that I can see so well that I can pass a driver’s test without any need to list any impairment is a huge improvement.
This has been a crazy thing to go through. And, I’m still going. It’s so hard to be optimistic when it’s something I can’t ignore. I “see” it all the time, no matter what I’m doing.
I’m trying to remind myself that he started the first few visits by telling me, in so many words, “this could be as good as it gets, keep an eye on the steroids.” I’m feeling optimistic that he instead called me the Energizer Bunny (I just keep going).
