Eye Injection And A Walk By The Sea

in Silver Bloggers3 months ago

One of the worse things about getting old is that things start going wrong with your body. Two years ago, during lock down, I started to have a problem with my left eye. It was like part of my vision in that eye was blurred and some was clear, a bit like looking through the glass you have in bathroom windows. I eventually managed to get an appointment to see an optician who said that I had had a retinal branch vein occlusion. A vein in my retina had become blocked which meant fluid had built up causing problems with my vision.
I was referred to a consultant opthalmologist.

Since then, I've had to have an injection in my eye every few weeks. It won't cure it but it does improve my sight for a few weeks, and it stop my sight getting worse. It's not pleasant having a needle poked in your eye, but it's better than losing your sight.

So today was the day that I had to have my eye injection. Usually I have to catch the bus, but today my wife was off work so she was able to take me. So afterwards we decided to go for a short walk by the sea which is quite close to the hospital. And I took a few photos.

The place is Bexhill On Sea in East Sussex, England. As you can see from the pictures, the sea was a little rough and the clouds were dramatic. Anyway, this is going to be a short post as I need to rest my eyes. Thankfully my right eye is fine, which is how I'm writing this. But it is a bit of a strain using one eye and anesthetic is wearing off the other eye. I'll catch up on any comments tomorrow when hopefully my sight will have improved.


You captured some amazing clouds over the sea. I hope your eye is better today. 👁

Thank you. Yes, it's improving every day. It won't ever be completely clear, but it will gradually improve over a period of a couple of weeks.

It's much better today thank you. I couldn't see much of what I photographed but I think they came out well. I love the look of dark clouds over the sea.

Thank you

Have a Great Friday!

The sea and sky look magnificent! I love the moody clouds, so atmospheric. I'm going to be in Ramsgate for a few days and I'm looking forward to a seaside walk, so different to landlocked Leicester!

Sorry about your eye, it can be very wearing coping with those sorts of problems. Hope things get better as you get into a routine.

Enjoy your time in Ramsgate and your walks by the sea. I only live about 9 miles from the coast so I get to walk by the sea quite often. There is something special about walking by the sea and enjoying the sea air.

My eye is much improved.

I agree about the specialness about enjoying the sea.

Good news about your eye 🙂
