Spring 2016 Update

Vascularisation in Max’s right eye has ceased and has retreated. The new membrane of the mouth has correctly been integrated into the eye. Vision has improved yet again, although it still fluctuates. This is mainly because of the bandage contact lens drying out quickly. This requires frequent replacement.

The epithelium healed within 2 weeks. A bigger part of appeared to be transparent. Saturday 26 march a second intervention took place. Again a portion of the bad cells was removed. Again the epithelium seems to heal correctly, and again a bigger portion of it seems to be transparent.
