I am now officially discharged.  That's the good news.

The bad news ('cos, hah, there always seems to be some of that) is that I am left with permanent unfixable damage.  The muscle that controls the pupil is ripped and unlikely to mend, ever.  This effectively means that my eyes don't work together for close range vision unless the light is /just/ right.  And even then it's not a definite.

There's not a lot that can be done either.  I shall be buying lamps for the house, so I can make sure all the areas I need to work/live in have the right lighting levels for me and I shall also be investing in some good sunglasses so that I can still spend time outdoors without worrying that I might be doing ore damage to msyelf.  Also, hats.  Hats are good and I need more of them as they will help with the light levels a lot.

I have an opticians appoint,ent next wednesday partly for my pressure test as I'm at a higher risk of glaucoma now and partly to see if they can change my prescription at all to make it more helpful for the problems I have in the meantime.

This isn't quite as bad as it sounds, I've been dealing with it since april after all and it's largely manageable.  It's just...  It's hard to hear that it's a permanent thing, even when you think that could be the case and right now this feels unbelievably hard to bear.
