Thanks to a skilled professional medical team I’m back with about 98% vision restored to my right eye. The surgery took just over an hour to complete. The recovery—complete with eye patch and medication four times a day for four weeks—went well. The most challenging part for me during the recovery period was the specific requirement to sleep either sitting up with my chin on my chest or sleeping on my right side only (I generally sleep on my left side or back). I will be wearing prescription glasses forever but compared with the alternative of no vision in that eye, I’ve got no room for regret or complaint and I have neither. It is still possible that at some point in the future I could again lose sight in this eye but for now, it has been restored. I can’t say enough great things about my doctor, his team and the administrative folks at the medical center who helped make this happen. They were all great. Bravo for education, training, intelligence and the science of medicine.
Thanks and great appreciation to all those who posted kind thoughts for me, sent me emails of encouragement and continued to visit this site during my absence. You all are great. Thank you.
