A very big day on this long journey. Today, I inserted the mini-scleral lenses in my grafted eye at Dr. Koffler’s office…and, for the first time in 15+ years, I had clear vision in my left eye. My brain and eye muscles are not sure what to do with the new information so the crispness came and went, but here are my unfiltered first impressions:
- Wow. I can read the doctor’s diploma across the room.
- The world is sparkly!
- Everything’s in 3D!
- Look at the birds!
- Look at the clouds!!!
- I don’t want to take this out!
I was only at a 3-hour wear limit today, so pulled them out mid-morning. I’m looking forward to inserting them again tomorrow.
The removal was touch and go because I’m out of practice, and the eye is just slighly “dry-sore” tonight. Nothing bad at all. Totally expected.
I got a ‘care package’ with new plungers and other solutions, etc from the office.
Postscript: Day 2, 3 of lens were tricky. Eye was a bit sore from lens and insertion / removal was difficult. I’m clearly out of practice on this. Still feel a lot of anxiety about damaging my graft with lens effort.
