Eyeball Update

Things are going much better on the eyeball front. Caitlin had her office visit with Dr. Trese, and he said she looked better and could wait until that Friday for the exam under anesthesia (EUA).

Thursday afternoon they called to say we needed to be at the hospital at 6:30 a.m. This hospital is an hour and a half away, so we had to get up at 4 a.m. to get there on time. Ugh.

Kender was first. His pressure in his right eye was 17, so he will continue on all three eyedrops (Cosopt, Xalatan, and Alphagan). Everything else looked good, so he gets to wait until September before going back.

Tamara looked okay, but there were areas where Dr. Trese had previously lasered that he said didn’t take, so he did more laser in both eyes on her. Otherwise, she’s good, and can come back to the office in October.

Dr. Trese found the bleed in Caitlin’s left eye, and had to do quite a bit of lasering to cauterize it. He thinks he got it, though, and he didn’t see any sign of retinal issues, so she just stays on light activity for now and goes back in the office in a few weeks. She also says that she doesn’t see any difference in her vision now that the bleeding has cleared up, so that is great news!
