Surgery Update: One Week Post-Op
Today, I left work for a few hours for my doctor's appointment, my routine check-up, a week after surgery. They said I have some bruising on my left eye but my vision is definitely getting a bit clearer. Yeah, I still have some redness which is making me paranoid, because I though that I might have done something wrong along the way, either during the process of the surgery, or in doing my daily eye drop regiment. And plus, the day after surgery, I forgot to shake one of the solutions before applying it, and I also forgot to apply it every 2 hours. Instead, I did it 4 times a day. Good thing I didn't develop any infections or complications so far. So yes, I'm still paranoid about the LASIK thing, but it's looking good. At least I can now see letters up to the 20 line. I could not do that for so many years. They checked my eyes under the microscope and the doctor said things are looking fine. I got scared for the past days because I think I scratched my left eye by accident, and I didn't wear my goggles on the 3rd day after surgery when I went to sleep. My right eye seems to be doing pretty well, and I'm hoping that the buises and redness would subside in a week or two. The good thing about this appointment is that the doc told me to stop the anti-biotic and the solution. That's two drops that I don't have to do, yipee! I only have to deal with one, the artificial tears. I'm still anxious, and yet excited to see results in the next three months.
