Seeing the eye doctor

I went to see an eye specialist today after being referred for an “urgent” appointment (nearly two months ago – I wonder how long it takes if it’s not urgent!?)

But at least the chap had the benefit of my recent MRI results as well as his own barrage of tests to help confirm my provisional diagnosis of MS-related optic neuritis. He’s ruled out any more sinister options, and given my (unaffected) left eye a thorough and positive health assessment, and also confirmed that my vision is well within legal standards for driving. So all in all it was worth the wait.

I will have a go at driving as soon as I am brave enough. That will be a step towards normal life again for me, hoorah!
