Eye surery update

I had hoped to say I can see clearly now the fog has gone but it remains in both eyes.

The operation lasted 4 or 5 times longer than the others having cataract surgery. 1 hour and15 minutes compared to 15-20 minutes. The glaucoma has badly damaged my eyes. The lens was glued to the retina. This caused problems during surgery.

Others could see better straight away or within a couple of days. I was told to give it a week to see the results.

A week in opticals is a long time as Harold Wilson almost said.

My left eye is now almost as good as my right eye which still has to be operated upon.

Th fog tells me it wasn't simply the cataracts. The glaucoma went down hill sharply around Xmas time.

I have to see the consultant/surgeon on Friday.

Reading emais and online newspapers and blogs isalmot impossible and very frustrating.

Eyesight is very precious and I hope things improve for you soon.

I am sorry the surgery didn't go as well as expected.

I wonder if you have some macular degeneration as well.
