Or at least one of mine does…a new lens.
Had my cataract surgery yesterday and as usual with me, nothing ever goes easy. Along with a delay waiting for the operating room to become available, my procedure that was to take about five to ten minutes lasted one hour and nine minutes. Evidently the thickness of my cataract was underestimated and it took the ophthalmologist extra time to complete the surgery.
I have to say it was probably the most unpleasant experience I’ve ever been through…ever. The numbing drops that were used didn’t work very well. My jaw was quite sore after the surgery from gritting my teeth. I went through childbirth three times watching Marti deliver our kids and clenching my jaw then didn’t hurt as much as it did this time.
But it’s all behind me now, so it’s a regimen of eye drops, Tylenol, eye drops and rest for the next few days, then even more eye drops for the next month.
Am I seeing better? Yes and No. I now see better with the newly repaired right eye at a distance but not good up close, and the left eye works great up close but not good at a distance. My current glasses are now obsolete because they seem to make me cross eyed…more so than usual. The eye doctor said to wait about a month before being fitted with new glasses. Looks like more toothpaste missing the brush and ending up in the sink. :c(
Because of my cross eyed state, Marti now is EDAIC for me (Eye Drop Administer In Chief), so the drops will actually get where they’re supposed to go.
Despite the cross eyedness I’m dealing with I still could see well enough to post this picture of my BBB (Best Blogging Buddy) Rick and his handsome little grandson, Mason, in case you missed it on his blog.
