Today I got the message online that on Thursday I will have the operation in my right eye and they will be using microsurgical procedures.
Microsurgery is a procedure in which the doctor creates a new channel to drain the fluid and ease eye pressure. I’m going to get a hatch somewhere in the eye so the fluid will come out and get back in circulations and drain away normally. A very fiddly job the doctor describe it and it will take about 2 hours and I will be awake. only local anaesthesia.
Since Friday have I been back and forward on the eye emergency at Lund’s University Hosptial to get the pressure down in my eye but it hasn’t moved. Yesterday I had a meltdown and cried like a baby. Laser and eye drop a couple of time every day and the pressure still on around 50. I had a terrible headache last week, because of new eye drops and it also tricked the pressure in the eye to rise. I let myself disappear in Tramadol existence.
I’m very lucky … even if this has been going on since 31th of January will they save my sight on my right eye … most people come too late and they have to kill the sight nerve. Glaucoma creeps on to you … I didn’t have any symptoms at all. If it hadn’t been for my optician – that thought I had got the cataract back in my eye, I probably only would have sight on my right eye today.
Most people who develop open-angle glaucoma don’t experience any noticeable symptoms at first. That’s why it’s critical to have regular eye exams so that your eye doctor can detect problems early on.
Symptoms of open-angle glaucoma are:
- A gradual loss of peripheral vision, usually in both eyes
- Tunnel vision in the advanced stages
Acute angle-closure glaucoma signs and symptoms include:
- Severe eye pain
- Nausea and vomiting (accompanying the severe eye pain)
- Sudden onset of visual disturbance, often in low light
- Blurred vision
- Halos around lights
- Reddening of the eye
Operation on Thursday … and check up on Friday and after that, I hope my blurred vision is gone and my tired and overworked eye will get some well-deserved rest. So looking forward to it.
