Successful op

Hi everyone, had eye op, wasn't as bad as I thought ( yes I know you all told me that !! ) after a bit of discomfort on the day eye is now beginning to clear and sight gradually improving. Thanks to everyone who messaged with support and good wishes. I can't wait to have next one done now, I will still be nervous, but at least I know what to expect. Have to go back in about a week to have it checked and make sure everthing is going ok. 

Thanks again, take care,

Christine XXX

Hi Christine glad your op was a success. I also had the op 2 years ago on one eye. And am waiting for the other eye to be done. But they won't do it till it gets thicker. Take care x

Hi well done and I am glad it wasn't as bad as you feared.  I remember my mum having one eye done and because she found it difficult to put the drops in herself me and a sister had to do it for her.  I wouldn't do it a first coz I was terrified of poking her eye out by mistake!   Eventually I told myself not to be so silly and managed to do it.  My mum God bless her was good as gold and didn't complain when several times I missed and the liquid rolled down her cheeks instead.   lol  x

Hi Christine, so pleased to hear that all went well and you are now on the mend. I remember when my grandma had hers done what a difference it made to her. Before she had her operation she was virtually housebound.

Hopefully your next one will go just as well.

All the Best. John
