From the translator’s journal ~Misdiagnosis~

Went to the eye-doctor today
to seek advice for
my age-related maculopathy.

The doctor gave me
another disease name…
Epiretinal membrane.

In short, macular disease,
but misdiagnosed.
Even with a new diagnosis
my eye-sight doesn’t change.

If a disease name changes,
the treatment should change as well.
I wanted the correct information.

Although I have no intention
to receive an active treatment,
I will seek a second opinion.
