Whew. Both eye surgeries went well and the implants are like having new eyes. The right eye lens is for distance and the left lens is for close. That is the correction my eyes adjusted to many years ago, so even without contacts my eyes would do the blended vision. The left lens has been in place since December 5th and it feels normal. The right lens was put in place Dec 19th just in time to see all the lovely snow. White is SO BRIGHT now.
Six months ago I changed the light bulbs in the bathroom to 100 watt bulbs and still had some difficulty seeing well in there. Now I need to remove the 100 watt bulbs and replace with 75 or even less. It is way too bright in there.
My friend Vicki drove me to both eye surgeries, waited for me and brought me home, and to the post op check ups at the doctor's office. She volunteered to do that. I have been around her a lot this past year and after the second eye surgery I looked at her and said "Wow, did someone paint your eyes?" Her eyes are so blue but I did not know that. It makes me wonder how long I have been seeing things in grey.
The swelling is down and the healing is amazingly fast. Never once did it hurt. Never did I feel uncomfortable. The jigsaw puzzles are lined up and my crocheting has begun again.
