I need a vitrectomy

This morning I checked in to the clinic and the doctor who replaced my doctor told me that there was a large tear and the water (vitreous fluid) had sipped into the tear. Retina detachment was forming and was progressive. He insisted me to seek expert advice from a VR (Vitreo Retina) specialist in Kuala…

I see a shadow

Perhaps, the worst nightmare, I have been expecting. After an afternoon nap, I woke up to see a shadow at the bottom of my left vision. It was not black or grey shadow but simply shadow which I could not describe. It was almost 5PM and I quickly told LA to give my doctor a…

Clearer vision

Today, my left vision has become very much clearer comparing to couple of days ago. This morning, I went to the clinic for a follow up and the doctor’s feedback was encouraging and calming. Everything is stabilizing and nothing to worry about but still more bed rest until I see his retina associate on next…

Veil vision

My left vision has turned yellowish and veil due to the blood and debris in the vitreous humor. I can see black shadow at the top of my vision which is actually remnant of the blood which has sunk to the bottom of my eye. It will take a few days for the eye to absorb…

Sedated

This morning went back to the clinic for followup of yesterday treatment. My doctor prescribed Xanax to sedate me. One in the afternoon and one at night for three days so that I could sleep better not to worry too much of my condition. After lunch, I took one tablet and felt very relaxing and…

More floaters and bleeding

My vision became clearer and appeared to be very much better after the incident last Thursday. LA and I were relieved after my eye test and the examination. The doctor told us that my condition was stabilizing but not totally out of the loop yet. So, more bed rest. I felt quick sick with all…

Scleral buckle and vitrectomy for retina detachment

I found a video on YouTube showing how a scleral buckle and vitrectomy is done to repair detached retina. It was yucky the first time I watched it and felt like puking. After watching several time, it became more interesting and I knew what had happened to my right eye almost three years ago. I…

More floaters

Yesterday, I went to the library to read some books. I returned home at about 6PM in the evening and a market surveyor from an established survey firm came knocking at the gate. I talked to him and accepted his survey. At about 7PM, my vision became worse. I was beginning to see curtain/veil vision….

Laser retinopexy

Monday morning, I saw a sudden influx of floaters at my left eye. My previous experience of retina detachment on my right eye immediately prompted me that I was in an emergency. Without hesitating, I called my doctor for his advice. He told me to lie down and not to move around so that the…

Laser Surgery

I had a laser surgery for my right eye this afternoon. It is an outpatient procedure. It took me about 5 minutes or less but I had to wait from 10AM till 1:30PM. That was a long wait. I had my cataract surgery on June 19, 2007. Read here. I also posted a video of…

Retinal detachment

When I woke up in the morning, the horse shoe had became darker and bigger. It had already covered almost quarter of my right vision. I quickly made a call to my doctor’s clinic and get the earliest appointment at 0930. We rushed down town and arrived at the clinic at 0925 but we waited…

Suspecting internal bleeding

When I woke up this morning, I noticed a veil or curtain vision on my right eye. The image on my right eye is a little darker and yellowish. We were rushing to bring 3 dinos to the clinics for health screening. On the way out, I suddenly noticed some dark floaters with smeared tailed….
