Well guys, I'm back home today with both eyes now done. The cataracts are gone, the lens are in, I'm dropping meds in both eyes and hopefully by Tuesday of next week I hope to be able to see clearly on any day or night. My follow up appointment is next Wednesday morning with a dental visit afterwards. All seems to be OK with the eyes but the right one feels like something is right under the top eye lid and the doctor got me putting in three different drops every hour today then four times each day after today.
I didn't read the eye chart as good as I did with the left eye but I'm hoping for good results after another week or so! Then of course if I still need glasses low vision type I'm OK with that too. For now I hope I see better and it will get better in a week maybe two. Today, I was the first patient to go in for the surgery after being second last month doing the left eye and a long wait when the AC went out in the operation room.
This feeling sure does make me want to rub my eye but that's a no-no and I have to wear the eye patch at night for a couple days to keep from rubbing it or any accidents while asleep or dreaming. So my wife had to take off work to do the driving back home but had me drive to the hospital early this morning in all that traffic. It's so amazing how many people drive in the left lane when signs are posted "Left lane for passing only." It just backs the traffic up especially when other cars are entering the expressway at a slower speed. Our speed limits just changed to 75mph but they still drive 60mph in the left lanes.
It's a 25 mile trip that should take 20 minutes to make but instead it takes an hour to go 25 miles on expressway and freeway driving. So many people live in Killeen but work in Temple. However just as many people are coming to Killeen and Fort Hood each morning and reversed in the evenings. The highway is currently being expanded to three lanes in both directions but with the driving habits most drivers got it will not help in my opinion. Oh well, I have home care so I don't have to make that trip every day thank God! I would go nuts!
