Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose, as the saying goes.

So, since stopping the Atropine it’s taken a week for my pupil size to return to normal. I had hoped that once the effect of the Atropine wore off, i.e. stopped the paralysing effect on the iris and lens muscles, that focussing might improve. I can’t see any sign of that yet although the sensitivity to very bright light – and yes I do include bright sunlight in that category – has reduced.

Meanwhile the reduced dosage of Dexamethasone has resulted in the eye becoming more sore and scratchy (partly due to the stitches I think) so I’ve increased my use of the soothing eye gel.

Still early days, eh?
