Folks, I have not been ignoring the blog. I had eye surgery to remove a cataract in my right eye. The lens in the right eye was replaced with an intraocular crystallens from Bauch & Lomb.
Recovering from cataract eye surgery at age 42 may take several or just a few weeks. After the surgery, my doctor says it is essential to rest and avoid strenuous activities or rubbing the eyes. I experienced mild discomfort, such as itching and blurred vision. My doctor gave me eye drops to help heal my eyes and prevent infection. I follow my doctor's instructions for eye drops and take all prescribed medication.
I know my vision will gradually improve as the eye heals, but it may take several weeks to stabilise fully. The left eye remains at under 20/20, and it is under strain to keep up with the right eye. I made adjustments to my daily routine, avoiding some everyday activities and working with my doctor to manage my diabetes to that it does not affect my recovery. But with proper care and follow-up, I should be able to regain good vision and return to my normal activities.
I wanted to update you on what's been going on with me. I haven't been ignoring the blog; I recently had eye surgery to remove a cataract in my right eye. It was a bit nerve-wracking, but I'm glad it's done. The eye surgeons replaced my damaged lens with an intraocular lens from Bauch & Lomb.
The recovery process is underway, and it might take a few weeks to stabilise. Right now, I'm taking it easy and following my doctor's advice to rest and avoid strenuous activities or rubbing my eyes. There's been some mild discomfort, like itching and blurred vision, but nothing serious. My doctor prescribed some eye drops to speed up healing and prevent infections.
The left eye is still catching up and sitting under 20/20, so it's putting in some extra effort to keep pace with the right eye. I'm adjusting my daily routine and working closely with my doctor to manage my diabetes, ensuring it doesn't interfere with my recovery.
I know it'll take some time, but I hope my vision gradually improves as my eye heals. With proper care and regular follow-ups, I'm confident I'll be back to my normal activities before long. Thanks for all the support, and I'll keep you posted on the progress!
