    Default Shingles - Both Eyes

    I'm not posting this for sympathy, all of us have had bad luck.
    I guess I want to praise my eye Dr. He had to diagnose my eyes which defied conventional diagnosis.
    The spectre of losing your vision gives you pause for thought, to say the least.
    I want to give a shout out to David G. who I asked for a time consuming quote for a boat. I then told him to suspend the project and he was more than gracious especially considering the time he had invested in the project.
    Health is a precious thing.

    Recovery underway? Losing sight is not a pleasant thought.

    Bilateral herpes zoster is very uncommon, and you were very unlucky to have it in both eyes.
    Good luck with treatment.

    We are making progress on it. I have to be aware of triggers and stresses which can cause flareups. UV light is the worst. Where can you get high exposure? In boats...

    At least you're living in the land of relatively low UV...especially in winter

    Good point about PNW winters. My timing is off though.
    Southern hemisphere?
