I'm interested in knowing what kinds of treatment has been successful at clearing up units caused by Eyelea injections. I now have floaters that are so bad, looking through my eyes is like peering through a dirty fish bowl.
The optic nerve in my right eye is enlarged and I usually have low blood pressure. I had one 50 sec incident well before Cialis use in a sedentary job. The second incident lasted after using for 2 months that started while sleeping and lasted 5 minutes for full recovery.
I have hypertension controlled by Lisinipril and Clonidine. I have had one shot of Eylea and my normally controlled BP has been higher than usual. It is now 150/87 and is usually 120/72 but my pulse is a normal 60 bpm.
