There are some who would rather not see healing eye photos, but still want to read the blog, so I have placed the day-5-healing-eye photo behind this cute fuzzy kitten.
The photo shows my eye, and the medical contact lens on it, still red from the surgery. Compared to a perfect eye it looks rough, but it is healing and getting better daily!
Key to photo:
1) Waviness… it appears that the front of my eye is all wavy, but it is not. This is a result of the “band-aid” contact lens. It’s annoying because it affects my vision, but important as it’s aiding the healing of my epithelium.
2) Beautiful little sutures. 1/20th the size of human hair. I do not have a continuous stitch.
3) The edge of the bandage contact lens – very hard to see. This is a soft lens around the size of a quarter dollar.
