Good Morning all, I'm in the Land of Workable Vision today..and so happy to report I'm only slightly "fogged" in my right eye. It's been a battle, but daily trips to the cornea specialist, 3 and then 4 types of eye drops to combat the infection, and I'm doing better. As of yesterday, he feels that I WILL keep the transplanted cornea I have..thank goodness! I'm not out of the woods yet, but I can see daylight, and quite abit more. Actually can read printing again. Oh Joy!!
I've come through 7 eyes surgeries between Nov.1997 and August 2000. And I've beat the odds, with no infection or rejection. And now, with all the stitches finally OUT of my right eye(they've been in there since Dec'98)a buried suture knot decided to raise Cain, and Abel too, for that matter..LOL. Luckily I have prety good health, and the cornea was healthy. The infection is contained and the cornea is busy making new cells.
If you've read all this, I may as well tell you also, that I only have vision in my right eye. The left eye only sees 20/300, which means "just the BIG E". It's good backup for the right eye, which does all the work. It's very scary to have any problem at all with my right eye. Count your blessings and take care of your eyes!!! Hard to quilt otherwise...LOL *VBS* Thanks for all your good wishes amd prayers...Hugs for all, Finn
