first follow-up exam

I had my follow-up exam this afternoon and learned some interesting things. Apparently instead of putting the conjunctiva flap on, they put on a bit of my old cornea. The implant is in a sort of pocket between layers of my cornea, and there is a hole in my cornea on the inside, so in stage 2 they will remove the bit of old cornea that is on top. So my thought about seeing through my patch wasn't crazy. Because the old cornea was cloudy and part of it is still there, it's expected that my vision will be cloudy. But there is less hazy cornea to look through. In the office my vision checked out at equal to what it was before surgery. I tend to not see well in the office, and I think that I'm already seeing a bit better--at least I have better perception of contrast.

That's about all there is to say today. My throat is hurting badly, and I hope I'm not about to get a cold or bronchitis or something. I need to stay healthy for my eye's sake!
