Today I feel like a cataract patient who exits surgery to exclaim that the colors are more intense, everything is brighter and there are sharp lines around everything – not blurred and fuzzy. I would consider this a major success!
I had what is called YAG Laser, treatment for blurry, cloudy vision occurring months or years after cataract surgery. It didn’t take even 10 minutes to shoot 61 lasers into my right eye and 56 lasers into my left eye. After so many drops etc. in my eyes I was very blurry to get out to the car. I figured if I just stood outside, somebody would pick me up! Haha! I couldn’t see much of anything when I walked out. Luckily Rick was there to pull up so I got in. Went to Wendy’s for a burger – could not read the board and I couldn’t see how to run the pop machine. A line formed behind us senior citizens who were so out of touch with technology that we couldn’t fill our cup with Diet Coke! So humiliating! And I never even requested a senior citizen discount!
I kept my eyes closed all the way home because it was so bright – even tho’ I was wearing sunglasses. I sat in my chair and closed my eyes at home but when I got up my eyes were much improved and today they’re even better.
I am actually typing this on my IPad without glasses – a first!
