I get dilated every other year and this was the year so I set up a crochet scarf last night because I can do that with my eyes shut. The tech got me set up and the doctor came in and redid the pressures. Mine are higher than normal and than my last years, but I am back on prednisone again. He said I should come back in six months to do pressures again.
He also told me that a study was done in the past year and the Restasis (which he ordered for me) can be used one amp a day instead of two, as long as you don't let the open top touch you or anything else. The ampoules are curved toward the opening, so as long as it's somewhere it won't move or be run into, it will be okay. It can't be used for two morning doses because that's too long. That means the Restasis will be only about $100/month -- I'll know for sure tomorrow when I get labs and pick it up.
While the tech was putting the anesthetic and dilating fluids in my eyes, he asked me to brush my hair away from my eyes so I don't get another dye on my hair. I said my hair wasn't dyed and the bit about silver hair again, but he didn't answer. I looked when I got home; the silver hair is there.
