Buster, here's a site that may have some things that will help you. Hopefully, though, the VA will provide you with some stuff.

Update. Without the glaze of 100 proof on my 1/2 ass good eye, which I now think has a pin hole.
I had a touch of pneumonia back in March. Still no luck with my eye. I have an appointment with the head of Ophthalmology on the 23rd. He called last week and said, I could get a second opinion from somewhere else,
and they would call me last Monday or Tuesday. Never happened. I've been politicking to make this happen.

So we'll see this week.

They did fix my old hearing aids and gave me a new pair.

Nothing else worth sharing.

Keep at them Buster. Good luck friend.

Curious... what are you drinking? I have a glass of scotch here, Laphroaig.

V at this time drinking the famous bird. Not a great scotch, but I'm por folks.
So. I saw the chief eyeball DR. at VA the 23rd. Boy was he slick. He sang me a verse of how great I is. And told me how lucky I was that I could see out of my right eye.
After 5 surgery's. Anyway I let him cancel my next app. for retina DR. and have spent all day trying to reinstate that. I really want to hit on her again, NO. BTW I still have the second opinion thing, I hope

well, if he's happy, it must be acceptable.

We need Google to add a Buster translate option.

I'm happy for you, Buster!

Hopefully, there's no hole in your macula.

The increased pressure in your eye is glaucoma. The pressure will kill the nerves in your retina, and they're the ones that allow you to see. The drops lower your pressure. Use the drops. It may be a pain in the ass, and they may have side effects, but if you don't use them, YOU WILL GO BLIND.

OK tomorrow, off to see primary care dr. About my knees, I didn't finish the MRI. My hip and shoulder was hurting too much. So we'll see if they cooked the books.
23th I guess I'll have laser work on my right eye. 26 In Am, boy ain't that nice!!
