My surgery went well. It only lasted about 15 minutes, so I had to be put to sleep for a short time. After I was done, I had doughnuts, and I went home and took a good nap, because the stress wore me out. I had to go back to get my bandage off, and I was very happy about that! I have to be on a lot of drops though, along with other medicine. But my eye is doing good. It's just swollen. That's why it makes my vision kinda fuzzy. I'm just glad it's over with.

Wow Nyu-chan, what wonderful news! I'm surprised they put you to sleep but different situations are different. For my wife they didn't put her to sleep because of the possibility of REM (rapid eye movement during sleep) but my wife also had astigmatism problems and her surgery required some extra work.

Yes, continue with the eye drops as the Dr. ordered and I'm sure you'll be has happy as my wife is! By the way, some of the drops/meds. may have rebates available - my wife learned a very expensive prescription eye drop med. had a rebate that covered way over 1/2 of the price! Ask your Dr. or the people working in his/her office about that OR they may even have FREE samples - even better.

Fuzzy vision is normal after this type of surgery, but hopefully it'll clear up soon. Your eye & brain may/will have to take some time to coordinate with each other. I'm so proud of you!!! Ya done good & you're very brave!!!!!!!
