Reading and Recovering


Good Morning! Home from the hospital and snuggled up with a lot of books!

The surgery on Monday was a Scleral Fixation of a Four-Haptic Intraocular Lens Using Gore-Tex Suture. Which basically means since the usual way wasn’t an option for me, they made tiny incisions in the white part and threaded a basket with a lens in it. Yep it is gross. It looks gross. But I now have a lens. For two years now I have not. Just procedure after procedure. All from a bad contact lens. Fresh out of the box.

Dr. Davis said I look great for 24 hours out of surgery. I’m still not over the anesthesia. That was bad. My throat is still sore from the intubation tube and I threw up for a straight 24 hours, but I think my head has cleared and now we shall go back to 4 different drops every 4 hours.

So I’m reading rather slowly. The good thing is the postman brought books!!

I’m taking this week to recover but will be checking in on you all!

xx Patricia

  2. I’m not sure what happened with your contact lens but sounds like it was pretty horrific. I’ve been wearing contacts for over 30 years so it concerned me. The older I get the more I’m wearing my glasses and finding them more comfortable.

    Nevertheless, I hope you will have a speedy recovery. 😊

        I find that my eyes are getting more and more sensitive to contacts as I’ve grown older. I think it’s partly because my eyes are so dry now, another result of aging.😤 And with presbyopia, another result of the aging process 🙄, when I have my contacts in I can’t see anything up close and have to always use those blasted readers!! 🤬 You can’t win. 🤦🏽‍♀️
        I just made an eye doctor appt. this morning. When I go I’m definitely going to focus on getting a good pair of reading glasses. I think that will work better for me. 😊
        I’m so sorry about your eye. I really am. But thank you for sharing your experience. It’s really helped me.
