Five Years

It’s been a while since I provided an update. As the saying goes… no news is good news. Things have been going very well with my eyes. I just got my new prescription and can see better now than at any time since my surgery (about 20/30). So let me step back and fill in my story since my last post. In the spring of last year I had another broken suture. It felt like I had a hair in my eye that I couldn’t rinse out. When I went to see my doctor, he ended removing the rest of my sutures – the running stitch and the outer sutures. I had some pain for a few days, and ended up going back about a week later because of redness and pain. He prescribed steroid drops for a few weeks, then I was fine. Removing the sutures definitely changed my vision. As my eyes settled, my prescription no longer matched my eye. I also didn’t have the up-close clear vision anymore; I used to be able to read up close small print very well with my corrected eye. I ended up getting reading glasses to help with the reading, a natural occurrence for those in their mid-40’s . I waited until this year to get a new prescription for my everyday glasses. With my new prescription I can see things pretty well. I still have some ghosting and blurriness, but I can make out street signs and license plates and read most text captions on the TV. I still have issues with my night vision, so I try not to drive at night, but I can if I have to. No rejection scares, and very little irritation. Things have been great.
