The good news is that this morning my vision was 20/40. It was 20/800 before the surgery. The bad news is that I have some striae on my right eye. That’s wrinkling like stretch marks caused by inflamation. If they haven’t improved by Monday I’ll have to have my flap lifted again and smoothed down. Chances of this happening? Slim.
less than 1-2% Chances of having multiple suction problems during surgery? Pretty uncommon. I like to play those 1-2% odds though. Look at the twins. Only 1-2% of twins are monoamiotic.
The surgeon called this afternoon and expressed concern over my eyes. So, back to the Operating Room I went. He lifted my corneal flap and resmoothed it. This time they gave me twice as much valium and it really helped. I don’t have the post-op pain this time, just a little discomfort and of course I’m a little doped up. He said that during my initial surgery my eyes were numb. But, I don’t believe him. If he’s right then I’m the BIGGEST baby on the planet. And, if that’s true, I’m not willing to admit it. Oh, and my left eye was 20/20 this evening!
ADDENDUM #2: This morning my right eye was 20/20, and the procedure was successful last night. There are no longer wrinkles in my field of vision. If you can believe it, my eyes actually look worse today, but they feel better! The doctor did concede that the blood in the whites of my eyes is particularly bad in comparison to most Lasik patients, but it’s superficial like a bruise and will go away.
