Lucy, hope you recovery really fast so you can see all of the beautiful, colorful irises blooming.
My husband had cataract surgery about 8 years ago and since then has 20/15 vision. When they took off the bandages the next day he was shocked at the color of my blouse, which was a deep turquoise blue. He always thought that particular top was a deep gray color.
Dr said that I could use the computer (I was surprised at that) but I was wearing my eye shield (has little holes in it). HJ We didn't have a computer when the right eye was done 5 yrs ago. You have instructions which you take home, drops etc. Plenty of guidence.
It is resting--Anita, not typing up the short ones robin, although it is written up. Nothing but soap operas on TV & I am not right up against the monitor. Can't get out & weed as I'm not supposed to bend over. Too sunny, anyway. thank you all for your concern. L
eye is fine I lost my security & had to go through a lot with a PERSON thank heavens. It is reinstalled & really had fun getting back on cubits. Back to eye--still doing drops,see Dr. next Thurs. Know I will be able to give up eye shield at night. Hope I can bend over & get back to weeding. I do have goggles which I can use so dirt doesn't splash into the eye.
Sight excellent. I knew the first night that it was fine as I was watching the Celtics & an ad came up. I closed my right eye & could read the add through the eye shield which they put on in the operating room. So I would guess the right eye is for close sight & now the left is for distance. after all, you can't expect fake lenses to do everything. It is just a bit sore & have to use different drops for a month & tylenol if there is pain. My 'pain' is more of a sting.
That's so good to know. Last time I went to the eye Doctor, he said do you know what cataracts are? I said kinda, and he told me everyone has them to a certain degree, and that mine had not really developed yet, but due to the shape of the eye, and whatever, I could expect to have them get to the point where I needed an operation on them someday. I was a little upset, as I remember my Aunt Helen having the operation and being in a lot of pain, and had to be in a dark room for weeks. But he said the operation is nothing like that now, and in fact it would probably correct my vision to the point I wouldn't have to wear glasses.
Agree with not yet. I can read without my glasses unless it is tiny print or I am tired. Certainly don't need glasses to use the computer. do have a pair of 'progressives' which will now be spending time in their case. I could see easier recovery which came in the 5 yrs between eyes. It is scary, however.
