New set of eyes with a little pucker?

“Enjoy your new eyes.”, said Dr. Bruce Cassidy on my left eye post-op visit on Wednesday. Both eyes feel quite good, minus their cataracts and plus their new lenses, for now. But last eve I got a little worried that my right eye may be faintly showing double images, and when I was out snow shoeing yesterday afternoon I noticed a cobweb-like floater in my right eye vision. Is the “macular pucker” that Dr. Cassidy pointed out to me in a test on my first visit rearing it’s puckered head? Macular pucker may or may not affect vision and I don’t really think the vision in my right eye is suffering much, but when I have my visit with Dr. Christine Newell on Feb. 10, I can find out if there is any loss or distortion of vision in my right eye. Otherwise, it’s fun having this new set of eyes and not having to wear glasses, except for reading and computer viewing. The nurse at my last visit handed me a pair of drugstore glasses which work fine for reading and computer viewing.

    Try not to worry too much. Very bright light can make things show up when they wouldn’t be noticed in other conditions.

    With your improved new vision you must be so scared of something going wrong, but I’m sure your doctor will be able to put your mind at rest.

    It must be so exciting to be able to see clearly again!

    Thanks, Dragonstar!! Yes, it is great fun and exciting not to have to wear glasses and have things nice and bright. In fact I had 20-25 vision using both eyes the day after I had my left eye cataract removed which is pretty amazing! So, a floater here and there doesn’t bother me too much. Thanks, Mererid!

    It’s very funny to emerge from my house in the afternoon and see your snow shoe tracks all across the fields.

    Yup, that was the old indomitable snowman guy scuttling along using his new eyes across the snow filled fields.
