A Visit to the Retinal Specialist
I accompanied my husband to Dr. Higgins’ office. There my husband had a series of tests including a fluorescein angiogram. They injected him with a substance that would course through his veins and show the veins in the eye clearly. It was so beautiful. Here is my drawing of it:
And here is the actual angiogram:
The veins come from the ophthalmic arteries derived from the internal carotid artery. To me it looked like a beautiful leaf and once again I pondered upon what miracles we are. The doctor gave my husband a shot on the eye so quickly; he was a real pro and my husband was a champ. He’s glad it’s (mostly) over although it did bring up some other issues.
