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!
