My ability to see is still a question mark seven weeks after surgery where a Baerveldt drain was placed in my right eye. After having the pressure in that eye creep higher and higher over a period of time with minimal change from eyedrops, I decided to have the surgery.
What about my vision? For much of the day, my vision is blurry. To read, I need to carefully adjust my light and the position of what I want to read. My eyes are super-sensitive to sunlight.
How do I feel about my visual future? I feel uncertain. Maybe even a little scared. I have real confidence in my glaucoma doctor. I've come to learn more about the difficult nature of dealing with eye diseases. I appreciate the depth of her knowledge and with her surgical skills.
Whatever happens, I am putting the weight of my situation on the "mustard seed" promise in Matthew 17:20. That verse says that if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you can move mountains.
Right now, I have vision, even though it may be challenged. Over the weekend, I had a great weekend at the beach with my family, all of them. I thank God that I could see my wife, kids and grandkids.
My eye journey continues.
