Preparing for transplant

with 3 comments

Once again I went to the brink of not updating the blog. Anyhow, it is all safe and sound now, for the moment at least as I am back. So, without much ado let get to the point.

I am somewhat all set for my surgery on next Tuesday (March 3). Finally, I have made the decision to go with my right eye to be transplanted first. Last 2 weeks I have been seeing Jess (my optometrist) to get my left lens better fitted. We are still working on it. I’ve noticed in the last one month my vision has actually deteriorated in both eyes (both are equally major candidates for transplant). Anyhow, lets get back to transplant preparation for now.

Today I have stopped wearing my right lens. On my optometrists advice I am keeping the last two days before the surgery lens free. It is more of a precaution to reduce bacterial activity in the eye before it gets operated. I don’t think it is mandatory but it is always better to take as many precautions as you can. So I am relying on the lens on the left eye from now on. Vision isn’t really any great with that one. But that’s all I’ve got now, so have to deal with it. Right eye is impossibly blur without any lens on. Will try to document how it changes after the surgery.

Signing off for today. I don’t think I will be making any more posts before the surgery.
