UPDATE 30:

September 29, 2015. The oedema is clearly coming back and I went for a check-up yesterday. In principle I needed another Avastin injection, but considering the medical history of my eye, we are going in circles. Initially there was still the hope that the oedema would not come back, but after 20 injections we are coming to the conclusion that it's not getting better. So there are 2 options; 1. do another injection with all the risks involved, or 2. no injection and check in 6 weeks time how it's behaving.
We choose the second option.
The Ophthalmologist explained to me that the following can happen: The oedema keeps swelling until it "pops" (kinda like a balloon). The result will be that a micron thin layer of the retina has "opened" and a "pseudo hole" will form. This is not a real hole, but you could consider it as a tiny dent (or crater) in the retina. Upon the question if this would be permanent the answer was "yes". So the next question is how will it affect my eyesight?
According the ophthalmologist the eyesight will remain the same as it is now, which to me is still acceptable.
Even though my left eye sight is a bit blurred, if it means that it stops there and the oedema does not come back, I can live with that, because luckily my depth perception is not affected. So we skipped the injection and in 6 weeks we'll see what the outcome is.

There was also some good news. The cataracts is no longer there. This means that THE HONEY DROPS REALLY DID CURE MY CATARACTS!! I have to mention though that I increased the mixture of purified water and honey to 50/50 (see also update 29). When applying the drops, it does sting/burn a bit, but it only lasts 10 to 20 seconds.

Please note that I am not claiming that the honey/water drops are a cure for cataracts, but it did cure the begin stages of cataracts in my eyes. I can not say if it will also work for the more advanced stages of cataracts.
However it has to be clear that if you want to try it as well, you will do so at your own risk.

My next appointment will be on the 13th of November, 2015.

UPDATE 31:

November the 14th, 2015.

Went for Checkup. The eye pressure results were good. The right eye 17 and left 16, which is where it should be.
Further nothing new to report. The Oedema is basically the same, so we decided not to inject.
My eyes are also still free of cartaracts. I'll keep using my honey drops.

The next appointment with the Ophthalmologist is on the 4th of January 2016.

I'll keep you posted on any new developments.

UPDATE 32:

January the 4th, 2016.

Went for Checkup. The eye pressure results were good. The right eye 18 and left 16.
Nothing new to report. Basically the same news as the last entry. The Oedema is still the same, so again no Avastin injection.
Also my eyes are still free of cartaracts. The Ophthalmologist actually mentioned how both my eye lenses cleared up so much. So encouraged by that comment I will continue using my honey drops.

The next appointment with the Ophthalmologist is on the 15th of February 2016.

As usual, I'll keep you posted on any new developments.

UPDATE 33:

February the 16th, 2016.

Went for Checkup and again nothing new to report. The eye pressure results were good. The right eye 18 and left 16. Basically the same as last time. The Oedema was slightly smaller and had shifted a bit from the centre of the eye by the optic nerve more towards the side. So once again I did not need an Avastin injection.
Also my eyes are still free of cataracts. So I will continue using my honey drops, with the approval of my Ophthalmologist.

This time we make the next appointment in 2 months time on the 18th of April 2016.

As usual, I'll keep you posted on any new developments.

UPDATE 35:

July the 18th, 2016.

The appointment was cancelled by the Ophthalmologist, and considering there has been no change, I decided to hold on a bit longer before making another appointment.

Today is the 15th of August, so almost a month after the canceled appointment. Still no change in vision. Like always I have good vision days with a slight deformation in my vision, and some days it's a bit less with blurred and more deformed vision in my left eye, at which time I am considering to make a new appointment. However the next day it's good again and I decide to hold on a bit longer. So in principle it's fairly stable and it does not noticeably get worse, so I'll hold on a bit longer. I still take my honey drops for the cataracts 3 x a day, Combigan to control the eye pressure 2 x a day and Nevanac once a day to keep the oedema at bay.

As usual, I'll keep you posted on any new developments.
