Here's what my new cornea transplant looks like from the front
August 08, 2018
After lunch today, I pick-up a new lens for my glasses and the right eye. It's all part of the continued healing of my right eye after a cornea transplant at the University of Michigan in May. I was told that my vision could change again within the next few months, but I was encouraged to get an updated lens for my glasses.
The challenge has been seeing detail and that has affected reading and seeing while driving. This should help, I am told. Improvement in my vision has been a game of inches, kind of like football where the game is just to move the ball downfield.
While taking a measurement of my pupil at Lenscrafters, they took a picture of my repaired eye and it showed pretty clearly my new cornea.
My admiration for ophthalmologists has only grown over the past several years. The U of M's Dr. Bradford Tannen is the latest. He did the transplant where a layer was taken from a donor eye and grafted onto mine and I was awake and it was done outpatient. This is the latest on my vision journey.
