Eye sight problems

8 posts in this topic

I have looked at all my posts but I am sure I had a conversation going with someone who had similar problems to myself just to let them know I have had my left cornea polished. It was not pleasant but hopefully it will give me some sight in that eye for a bit longer. C'est la vie

... had my left cornea polished ...

I didn´t know that was even possible.

 

Hopefully many years of good eyesight for you!

Quite possible Sverker. A diamond laser polish. Very painful and traumatic but hopefully successful. Still a bit shell shocked but alive!

I wished you better vision and an improved life from this procedure

I never heard of this procedure, Mags, and it sounds quite frightening. I hope it has succeeded in improving your vision long term.

Saw the surgeon today and he says the cornea is now completely clear. Vision has improved slightly but it was always very poor in that eye so I can't expect miracles at my age. It was a horrid experience and will have to do it again some time in the future in the good eye. As long as I can see my big cats next September it's ok!

Someone I know (over 80 years old) two months ago had the same procedure as you underwent.

Apparently the results are positive, as their eyesight has noticeably improved.

I hope that you're likewise experiencing better vision, so that your safari in half a year will be very enjoyable.

I'm limited to vision in my right eye, and therefore have much empathy for vision issues.
