I went to see my eye doctor Mr. Lee yesterday, for a follow-up check. He was pleased with my right eye, and just reminded me to keep instilling the eye drops. We talked for a little while, and I asked him when it would be possible to perform cataract surgery on my left eye.
Needless to say, he’d have to order the lens from the States again (wow, then I’d really have a pair of American eyes, lol) We’ve fixed the next surgery for July 29, 2009. I’m sure my right eye would have healed completely by then, so at least I won’t be so blind when my other eye is done.
At present my right eye sees about 95% clearly (I have some residual power left, due to my intense near-sightedness) I’m wearing a contact lens for my left eye, but even that is under-corrected. However, it’s such a nice feeling to be rid of those thick glasses once and for all—yay! It’s great to wake up in the morning, open my eyes, and be able to see well without putting on glasses. Sight is probably one of the most important senses we have—so take care of yours, and visit a qualified ophthalmologist periodically to check.Tags: cataracts, eye, ophthalmologist, surgery
