I had days this winter when I wondered if this day would ever come where my eyes felt normal and my vision seemed almost perfect. I got the answer this past Thursday when Gladys and I went for my appointment with Dr. Wolfe from Beaumont hospital who holds office hours in our town every other week.
He did the latest surgery on my errant right eye where the lens implant kept falling out of place and would lay on the bottom of the eye. The surgery was complicated and it involved draining the vitreous out of my right eye and attaching the implant to the schlera of the eye. This followed surgery a month before for a detached retina. And I had two more surgeries before that.
My vision seemed really compromised and I was starting to wonder if it would ever come back. I felt like I was in the wilderness and I wondered if I would ever cross the Jordan. Well, I have.
The good news from the doctor's lips
Dr. Wolfe confirmed what I was already experiencing. The lens implant was still in place, my vision was improving steadily and there still was no pain from the last surgery. He said it was time to get a new prescription for my glasses.
I felt almost in shock that this chapter in my heath experience was almost over. Whether this lasts for a short or long time, I'm ready.
