Okay, so I have my next follow up visit in 10 days, but thought I’d post a quick update with a few observations.
First, overall things are great. I am very pleased with the outcome. I am able to drive at night without even thinking about it. We’ve had lots of rain in KY lately, and I’m fine driving at night in the rain. Amazing. The vision alternates daily but never gets anywhere close to as bad as it was pre-surgery.
I’ve had some allergies lately, and they seem to be causing some discomfort in the DALK eye. My daily Zyrtec doesn’t seem to be enough to completely fix the problem. I have no added redness or vision changes, so I have little concern about it. I also may have a suture that’s grumpy. The Restasis makes me itch quite a bit – but I’m forcing myself to use it. I’m still not mowing grass or doing garden work. I’ve been paying someone to handle it.
TIP: When you have surgery, ask your Dr. for one of the physician samples of whatever steroid drop you’re using. It’s nice for carrying around in a purse or briefcase in case you leave the bottle at home. Yes you will.
So I’ll update again on the 26th or 27th after my visit to Dr. Holland.
