On the inside were mushrooms, onions, and extra sharp Cheddar cheese. It was a good thing that I had my iPhone at the ready, because this baby disappeared right before my very eyes.
The one-week report on the cataract surgery is that he has 20/20 vision in his left eye. The right eye is scheduled for mid-August, and he is very much looking forward to it.
For those of you who have not had cataract surgery, I will pass along a small tidbit that surprised us. The fixed eye is now dominant, and the damaged cornea over the other eye has little effect on the quality of sight. It’s as if there is no other eye. Apparently the brain takes over to make it possible to function perfectly well in this manner.
And, just as everyone had shared, the operation itself was almost a non-event. He vaguely remembers a few sketchy events, but even though he was awake, any details of the 15-minute procedure were gone upon completion of the event.
Funny story . . . Trying out his new eye for the first time with his camera, DH was horrified to find that there was something terribly wrong with either his camera itself, or the viewfinder. I looked through it, and it looked fine to me. You guessed it – he had looked through it with the unfixed eye out of habit!
