Had a very good 5-month visit today where 5 sutures were removed. We’re playing “suture roulette” now, chasing the astigmatism around my cornea.
My astigmatism went from 9 diopters to 4 diopters, which is excellent. I’m now seeing 20/30 corrected! The graft is also healing very well. My steroidal dose was cut in half and my eye pressure is now stable/managed.
For the first time in 10+ years, when they adjusted the settings on the eye testing optics, I reached a 20/30 level of vision. It used to be a pure blur. They used to flip the lenses around and I’d say “same, same, same”…it never got better or worse. But now, it’s like it should be.
Dr. Holland said if I was in a hurry, I could possibly get fit for contacts, but I’m going to wait and let the graft heal as long as possible.
