Eye Update and what’s next…

I went to see an Ophthalmologist last week. He had indicated that he did see some items relating to the nerve in the left eye.  Some irritation.  He didn’t get very specific.  He was also hesitant to call it optic neuritis due to the fact that I didn’t have other symptoms that typically go along with it.  Ultimately he wanted to wait to see what happens.  He also recommended that I see a Retina specialist as they have some laser tools that can do more specific imaging that he couldn’t do.  Although he said to do that in 6 weeks or so. 

The pain I was feeling appears to have subsided.  Last Saturday was the last day I recall feeling it.  So, that is good at least.  Still leaves a ? though. 

I also got a call from the MS Clinic at UT Southwestern this morning.  They are going to get me an appointment!  That was pretty quick also.  Only about 2 weeks or so.  It is scheduled for March 26th.  I’m really looking forward to that.  While I’m guessing I’ll still have unanswered questions, I have a more confidence in that center than my current doctors.  From what I’m told I’ll be in better hands regardless.

So, it looks like I have a month before any more real news…
