One Down, One to Go…

I had cataract surgery on my left eye last Wednesday. Post surgery I had quite a bit of discomfort. My follow-up appointment the next day revealed that I had a 4mm abrasion on my cornea. How it happened I don’t know, but fortunately, corneas heal rapidly. A contact “bandaid” lens was applied, which eased the discomfort immensely and within 24 hours the cornea had healed by 85%. The contact lens was removed to allow faster healing. For now, my eyes are somewhat fighting one another and my eyeglasses are pretty useless at this point so I am using readers when necessary. But at six days post-op I am amazed at the clear, bright color I now see with my left eye opposed to the dull greenish tinge my right eye sees. If I close my right eye and just use my left eye I can see the words that I type on my computer screen clearly while the right eye sees everything fuzzy. I look forward to having surgery on my right eye…that will happen on August 24. Obviously, I won’t be doing any beadwork for a while…such fine detail work is presently not advised. But I do have a lot to look forward to once I am able to see clearly with both eyes. I have a fresh supply of bezel wires, pancake dies, and texture plates to play with as well as some beautiful new gemstones! I’m one lucky lady indeed!

  1. Glad that the surgery went well! You can expect similar color clarity in the other eye after the next surgery, so I have been told. Judy


  2. Glad that that the discomfort didn’t last long and that you’re healing well!
