DALK Transplant – A photo of my healing eye

14 Mar

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.
