Five Years

It’s been a while since I provided an update. As the saying goes… no news is good news. Things have been going very well with my eyes. I just got my new prescription and can see better now than at any time since my surgery (about 20/30). So let me step back and fill in […]

One More Incident

A few days after my sutures were removed I was feeling a lot better. I was able to play a round of golf that Saturday and had a very busy Sunday. My the end of the day Sunday, I was tired. I stayed up a little later than I should have watching Sunday Night Football. […]

Uh Oh… a Suture Broke

I haven’t written a post  in while. As they say, no news is good news. Everything had been going well for the most part. My vision has been pretty stable and I’ve seen slight improvements in my vision during eye exams. I got my last pair of glasses in March. I didn’t find glasses that […]

Two Years

It’s been a little more than two years since my surgery. Things are going really well. I have a new pair of glasses and my surgical eye is now correctable to 20/25. Not a sharp 20/25, but so much better than before. I am able to use my eye for the first time in a […]

One and a Half Years

It has now been almost 20  months since my surgery. Things are still going well. I took a plane trip to California without any incidents. I’ve heard about some people have problems because of the cabin pressure. My vision improvement seems to be pretty stable now. I haven’t had any more stitches removed since the […]

One Year

It has been a while since I’ve posted. Everything has been going well. It’s amazing to think that it’s been a year since my surgery. Here’s an update since my last post way back in Month 9. I’ve had no more incidents since the issue in November. I noticed my vision, especially the under 3-foot […]

Month 9

Things have been going well since my last post. I’ve noticed slow, but steady improvement in my vision. Things have stabilized with my eye pressure. At my eye appointment a few weeks ago they were able to correct my vision to 20/40… a blurry 20/40, but definitely better than the 20/300 I was getting before. […]

Month 7

It has been a while since my last post. I’m still healthy and my vision is still improving, albeit a lot slower than I had hoped. The last couple of months has been very busy, with work and a couple of trips and great weather. During my July appointment I was able to read the […]

Month 4

It’s been a while since my last post at Week 9. I had just had my first two stitches removed. I had two more stitches removed in May, and two more removed last Thursday. My vision is pretty much unchanged since last month. My health has been excellent, and I haven’t had any problems with […]

Week 9

Last week I had my 2-month follow-up with my doctor. He said that everything looks good. A topography was taken of my eye, and my first two stitches were removed – one near the top and one near the bottom-right. I wasn’t sure what to expect going in, but it was surprisingly easy. He asked […]

Week 7

I has been about a month since my last post, and almost seven weeks since my surgery. The swelling is pretty much gone, and I don’t have as much sensitivity to light. Up until about a week ago I was still having problems with light during my morning commute. The sun was right at eye […]
