I spent the morning in the Eye Clinic at Hull Royal Infirmary; attentive readers may recall that what triggered all these medical visits and diagnoses was the optician telling me that the pressure in my eyes was over the limit that triggers a letter to the doctor, back on 9th March (it seems longer :).
So I trundled down there for 9 a.m. this morning, firstly having a fields test, then variously, four lots of eye drops, an ultrasonic measurement of my corneas, lights bright and less bright shone into my eyes, optic nerve photographed, apertures measured, pupils dilated, and lord knows what else. And at the end of it – NO PROBLEMS! Nothing at all – no diabetic damage, no problems with pressure, nothing at all.
To say I’m relieved would be a bit of an understatement, to be honest. Here’s a picture of my right eye so you can see how well it is.
