Enucleation, not a familiar word to most and im sure a lot never heard of it until now. It's a word that i just added to my vocabulary. Recommending an enucleation is one of the most difficult therapeutic decisions in ophthalmology and it was just recommended to me. No other choices are available. I lost an eye around age eight and it didn't become noticeable until i became older. It has been no big deal to me and never slowed me down until recently when i started feeling pain and the vision of my good eye that was always above normal seemed to be not as well lately. looks like in the next month or so i'll be having that Enucleation( weird word) and then i 'll decide if i go for an artificial one or wear a patch. It was recommended a while back that i should be wearing one but like most advice a lot just go by the wayside. I'll at least have something to blog about later and start wearing a patch most days up until that time.
