Vision Vastly Improved!

Thursday, April 28, 2016

Although it's still healing, my check up with the eye surgeon shows huge improvements. As far as the tech could tell, my eye is currently at 20/30 vision. That's a far cry from 20/475. My vision is still real blurry but all the colors are sooooo much brighter. As it heals, my vision will get better yet. Now when I compare the colors with my right eye to my left eye, the right eye sees white as white and the left one sees it as off white - almost beige. That is due to the cataracts in the left eye. The color difference is very annoying. I asked the doctor if I,could get the other eye done and he smiled and said that the cataracts aren't bad enough yet in my left eye. Good vision is such a blessing. I really am blessed to be able to see and hear.

    I am so happy for you! Vision is a blessing we often take for granted or don't think about much if we're not having problems. I've had poor eyesight since very young age. I am glad you were helped and are seeing better! Enjoy your blessing!

    Wonderful, wonderful, Cyndi!! So glad that vision is improved and improving. Hope that other one will go ahead and get ready for surgery so you can have stereo improved vision! With Gary we are waiting for his to get ready for surgery. I have the very beginnings of cataracts myself, but the eye doc said they could need surgery right away or it could be years and years.

    When my friend Bertie had cataract surgery she was not allowed to dance for several weeks. Do you have physical limitations?
