Just spent the whole morning in the eye specialist office, and it is worse than either I or the doctor thought

OK, my friends, here is an update. The eye specialist said this morning that things are worse than he thought. The other eye is inflamed now (which happens pretty often with this stuff), and the eye that has already been inflamed for a few months now is worse.

So, I have to take a new regimen of stronger drugs. One of these is significantly stronger than what I had been taking. I do this for two weeks and then go back for a check up. At that time we will see if this new drug is doing the trick.

My eyes are dilated, and that means seeing well enough to write at this point is futile. I hope that by this evening the dilation will have subsided enough for me to write an Examiner article. You will be first to know if I do.   

Needless to say I need your prayers more than ever. I am not interested in going blind. If I do, or lose a significant percentage of my sight, then writing will be well nigh impossible. That would be devastating.

Sorry to hear this.
I don't know what your condition is but have you looked into diet and supplements?
I have actually noticed an improvement in my health with fish oil and Vitamin D.
I also take supplements for the eyes.
It might be worth a try depending on what your condition is.
Good luck and best wishes to you.

That sucks. Have you tried text to speech? It is a pain in the butt to train, but it works well after the time investment. Good luck.

We hope you don't go blind are lose most of your vision. IF you do, there are other ways to write. Look into it. Decide now what you would want to try first. We still hope for your getting well. Just remember that there is more than one way to skin a cat.

Thank you my friends for your well wishes and comments. I will check into all available options. I am still counting on the latest regimen working. But there's nothing wrong with looking at contingency plans.
