Edema will clear once the fluid buildup dissipates.
Pan-retinal photocoagulation for proliferative - not sure why it gets better, if it does. It might be a brain adjustment thing; because the damage is permanent. Are your eyes still dilated? I'm having a hard time remembering what it was like in the days after. That was 18 years ago.
Some remain sensitive to light and cannot drive after dark.
Mine are somewhat sensitive, but I can drive fine. Real dark, wet nights I generally don't.
Depth perception will be impacted. I have a very hard time catching a baseball, and I have trouble hitting tennis balls. But I can knock a hockey puck out of the air fine with my stick.
Virginia Woolf: “Consider how common illness is, how tremendous the spiritual change that it brings, how astonishing, when the lights of health go down, the undiscovered countries that are then disclosed, what wastes and deserts of the soul a slight attack of influenza brings to view, what precipices and lawns sprinkled with bright flowers a little rise of temperature reveals, what ancient and obdurate oaks are uprooted in us by the act of sickness, how we go down in the pit of death and feel the waters of annihilation close above our heads and wake thinking to find ourselves in the presence of the angels and the harpers when we have a tooth out and come to the surface in the dentist's arm-chair and confuse his "Rinse the mouth-rinse the mouth" with the greeting of the Deity stooping from the floor of Heaven to welcome us - when we think of this, as we are so frequently forced to think of it, it becomes strange indeed that illness has not taken its place with love and battle and jealousy among the prime themes of literature”
