Dr. Chrystenberry had a battery of tests done, and I went back for the Lasik in my left eye. I was awake the whole time for this procedure. Can’t really tell yet–i’m to give it two days to notice improvements. Right now I want to rest, and he gave me a pill. If the pill will let me rest, and wearing the bubble over my eye will not let me rub the eye, it will heal faster. There was concern that my right I is not improved like he would like to see, and so there may be a Lasik treatment for it as well—maybe as early as tomorrow. The conversations he had with his staff, and not me, but in proximity (so I guess I am in th loop), indicates that it could be a need. But because I am a rezoom/restore patient, all lasik touch-ups are free. My worry is the number of days I will miss. If the team does decide to do LAkisik on my right eye, PLEASE let it happen tomorrow. I already have tht day of as a sick day. Then I’ll have to come back in a month, and then 6 months for reachecks. Lift up some interessesiry praters for me friends.
Today Thursday is my 1 month doctor’s visit for the follow up to my eye surgery. Steadily and daily my vision has improved, at least that was true until this week. I now can see and read clearly with my left eye, but the right eye is still significantly blurrier than I am comfortable with. Ever the researcher, I went online and found in a forum that now that my eyes have surgically healed, it is time for my brain to kick in. I can read fine, though it is a tad blurry. The blurry is because my eye surgery gave me two different kinds of lens, and so I see a “different” way out of each eye. It’s like my eyes are now arguing over which is going to be the dominant eye. Before surgery, my right eye was the dominant eye. Now after surgery I feel like the left eye is being more dominant. When print is very small I find myself turning my head or cocking it so that I am looking more with my left eye, b/c it is clearer than the right. I haven’t worn any glasses to speak of in ten days. I took a pair to school Thursday b/c I had planned to organize some data in a spreadsheet, and since I like to see most of my columns, the view was going to have to be 100% or smaller. I got them out and put them on, and realized I cannot read anything through them. They are no help now. That’s a good thing, right? I no longer carry the glass case in my purse at all, and now my husband and son have resumed their habit of asking me to hold their wallets.
