DALK [Surgery + 5 Months]

Well, I have to say that for the first time I am a little disappointed. The week started off great, knowing that I'd reached 20/30 with lenses in Dr. Holland's office. I went over to Dr. Schaffield to get rechecked and have my prescription filled. I also came out 20/30 at her office and could even read some of the 20/25 lines on the chart. So, I placed my order for glasses.

The next evening I slept rather deeply. I vaguely remember waking up and rubbing my left eye without realizing what I was doing. Just briefly, but enough to make it a little sore. The rest of the day was a bad eye day. Still seeing OK, but not as good as on a good day. I noticed a great deal of double vision which has lasted up until today, so around 4-5 days.

I must have pissed Maria off, because she is in full effect.

Needless to say, I have been thinking about going back over to Dr. Holland's and getting checked out to make sure I didn't screw something up. What has stopped me is that this type of vision has happened before, and it usually fixes itself in a day or so. It could be because of the steroid or even the Restatis (they have been known to make the vision a little blurry) so I have tried not to worry. The only other thing could be the weather changes we've been having, adding to the ocular pressure in my eye and causing some blurring.

My glasses do make a big difference, just not as much as I had hoped. I can now read street signs and license plates if I'm close enough, and watching TV was awesome last night. But today my eye feels very "tight" and not quite right.

I'm going to give it a few days and think about making another appointment with Dr. Holland.


  1. Dude, don't be rubbing that, man! Hope everything's alright.

  2. Wow... hope things are okay. Did you learn anything?
