Week Two Eye Doctor Visit Post Advanced Surface Ablation Surgery

So, today they had me do the “look at the red barn” test.  I’m not sure what those results were, they didn’t say, and I forgot to ask.  I tested on the subjective test 20/50, left eye…20/30 right.  Still some swelling in my right eye.  He said my near-sightedness has completely corrected now, the surfaces on both eyes are now completely smooth.

As far as pain, now, there is this occasional feeling that a rod has been jammed into my eyeball.  Phantom nerve ending pain, healing pain, fleeting pain…it goes from one eye to the other.  Painful, but not overbearing.

So, now, just waiting on the epitheleal layer to smooth out and continue to thicken before we know what we have.  I’m combined at about 20/40.  I can see relatively well considering I’m uncorrected.  There is just a sort of glare or slight blur I can’t wait to have gone now.  When I wake up in the morning now, things seem more clear than blurry overall, though…a great feeling.

“Maury” the last commentor, posted the same surgery beginning to end on his blog (his older blog…I’ll try to insert that link.)  He had Lasik in one eye and ASA on the other).  He said at 30 days, he was good, 60, great, 90 excellent, and at four months, PERFECTION.

Aaah.  That sounds great–perfection.

That sort of time line at least helps me know how to pace my progress and grace!

Sifting the joy from the mundane:

recording, photographing, learning, creating.

I am married to the love of my life, as we raise three children, learning the ways of grace.


Magnanimity (derived from the Latin roots magn- great, and anima, soul) is the virtue of being great of mind and heart. It encompasses, usually, a refusal to be petty, a willingness to face danger, and actions for noble purposes. Its antithesis is pusillanimity. Both terms were coined by Aristotle, who called magnanimity "the crowning virtue."

Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary of the American Language defines Magnanimity as such:

MAGNANIM'ITY, n. [L. magnanimitas; magnus, great, and animus, mind.] Greatness of mind; that elevation or dignity of soul, which encounters danger and trouble with tranquillity and firmness, which raises the possessor above revenge, and makes him delight in acts of benevolence, which makes him disdain injustice and meanness, and prompts him to sacrifice personal ease, interest and safety for the accomplishment of useful and noble objects.[1] (Source: Wikipedia)

"Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not come. We have only today. Let us begin." ~Mother Teresa




A kind heart is a fountain of gladness, making everything in it's vicinity freshen into smiles. --Washington Irving




When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn. -Harriet Beecher Stowe
