Newly Diagnosed With Questions

My diagnosis was a nightmare! The doctor was in a hurry and blew me off. Long story short, I saw a retina specialist and he did tests and I got a totally different diagnosis! My left eye is in the beginning stages and right eye intermediate! Not beginning in both eyes. I have an appointment for 6 months, not one year!

Should I make an appointment?

Now for my question. The last few weeks my right eye is blurry when I wake up. It clears up fairly fast most days. One day it stayed blurry most of the day. Then on Friday I felt some pressure behind that eye. It left after a few hours. The Amsler grid has changed minimally. Is this my new normal? Should I call for an appointment? I was diagnosed 10 weeks ago. I have read everyone’s stories and love this site. Thanks for this
