To the Eye of It

I really apologize for not posting this all earlier but I've had some energy spikes and had to use what I had. :)

Anyway, on Friday I went to the Retina Specialist for the second opinion on my eyes. He also agreed that my optic nerve looked a bit... out of whack but that it was probably just from surgery/radiation. He ran a few additional tests and saw that my right eye does have some vessel shrinkage/death in the area behind my eye. However, this is all normal with what I've been through. Therefore, he said he would like me to return in 4 months to have the test run again to see if there is any change.

If there is increase, he said it is easily correctable depending on what is actually causing it. Most likely just what I've been through the past 6 plus months.

So there's your update. Nothing major just as I suspected but now at least we have several good baselines so we can watch my sight since it did receive radiation and could cause problems in the future.
