Post Shot Routine

Last updated: September 2022

My doctor bandages the eye after the shot which I appreciate as that keeps me from scratching it in my sleep at night.

I prefer getting the shot as late in the afternoon as possible. My hearing aids are paired to my TV so I can listen to programs to help pass the time a bit, even though my hearing is also very defective - and becoming more so. 90+ years of age limits my options.

I remove the bandage in the morning and use dry eye drops liberally all day.
