Eye exam complete. I found out that I was correct, and my condition is covered for annual eye exams. Minor changes in my distance prescription and lots of changes to my near sight. Doctor is recommending I go with progressive lenses.
While they can't do much to correct vision in my right eye due to the optic nerve damage, it will certainly be nice to be able to see better than I have been, and not have to struggle to read labels etc.
Just a short note about this blog.
For timeline purposes, posts from 2008-2014 are summaries of significant happenings in those years. Please use the Blog Archive links to start at the beginning.
Past tense/Present tense language may change within a post, but those variances should not impact the overall telling of my experiences. I am Canadian, therefore, the spelling of some words (tumor/tumour, color/colour) may vary depending on if it's my wording or quoted text. I have tried to include both key words in the labels of relevant posts.
The blog contains medical terminology. I have tried to provide explanations or definitions when they occur. Occasionally medical images (nothing too graphic) are included to further explain or demonstrate.
Explanations and graphics link to original sources wherever possible with the exception of my personal photos.
