Had my cataract surgery a week ago and the double vision post-op has finally settled so that I can use a keyboard again - yay!
Had some complications during surgery - 'normal' for me I'm afraid - excessive bleeding that they had difficulty stopping so I ended up being kept in overnight
Pleased to report that I now have perfect sight in my right eye - just in time cos the vision in the left eye is now virtually non-existant, just shapes and light and dark. Also colours are now really vibrant and everything much brighter - yippee! - hadn't realised just how much colours had faded.
The stitches will have dissolved in another week and I will be able to take the dressing off during the day and just use the shield at night - I'm sneakily without dressing in order to type this (allowing the eye drops to soak in!). No pain, just a slightly scratchy feeling that goes once the drops are put in.
Have felt really bored and frustrated at times as unable to read or watch a film so I want the next week to speed by. My daughter downloaded a couple of books for me from iTunes onto my iPod so not completely without books
Well, back to the shadowlands - putting the dressing back on Have missed being able to read and comment on the blogs so will catch up as soon as I have the chance.
