Month 9

Things have been going well since my last post. I’ve noticed slow, but steady improvement in my vision. Things have stabilized with my eye pressure. At my eye appointment a few weeks ago they were able to correct my vision to 20/40… a blurry 20/40, but definitely better than the 20/300 I was getting before. I was scheduled to visit my optometrist this week to get fitted for new eyeglasses, but had a minor setback last weekend. I woke up last Sunday with pain, redness and severe light sensitivity, which are all symptoms of rejection. I got in touch with my doctor that day. I bumped up my dropped and was planning to see him on Monday. When I woke up, all of the pain and light sensitivity was gone, but I still had some redness. He asked me to continue taking 4 drops a day for 2 weeks and mentioned that I should delay the eye appointment. I was back to normal by Tuesday. I’m still not sure that caused the incident; it might have been sleeping on my eye wrong, not getting enough sleep, or something else.

I also had a milestone this week – I was able to confirm that I have some depth perception. This past weekend my wife and I took the kids to see a short Halloween-themed 3-D movie. While I didn’t get the full experience, I was able to see many of the 3-D elements. Prior to my surgery, I was unable to perceive any of the 3-D effects when I watched a 3-D movie at the Detroit auto show. I’ll probably try this again after I get my glasses. So far so good though. Maybe one day I’ll be able to see what this 3-D craze is all about.
