Jaye’s Journal ~ week 26

Jaye's Journal x12


During the discussions about my cataracts, I was assured that between eye surgeries I would not notice too much difference between the new eye and the old one.

It has since become clear to me that they were in no position to make such claims, as the difference between my eyes is unpleasant and very marked.

The remodelled eye does not need the distance glasses anymore, and its reading capability has improved dramatically too.

The other eye seems so much worse by comparison and I’m sure it’s not my imagination. Luckily, they want to fix that one as soon as possible, but in the meantime, I am finding reading and writing quite a trial. (even with one eye closed)

Of course, all of this is seriously delaying publication of WIP, for although I have almost finished editing, I don’t have a snowballs chance in hells chance of getting to grips with any promotion.

The upgrade to Windows 10 is still ongoing and I’m almost at the end of my rope there too as there are still a few wrinkles that I cannot seem to get around. I might have to admit defeat and make do with what I have managed to sort out so far.

I’m just grateful I have a reasonably well-behaved laptop to take up the slack. The print is small but manageable.

Add to all the above not being allowed to bend over or exert myself in any way for a week is frustrating the hell out of me. I’m not sure why either, unless they worry about the eye falling out?

  1. Patients usually need to visit the optician for a new prescription and new glasses after cataract surgery. Glad you can see better with the treated eye, but you might have to wait a bit for the second surgery. Not being able to bend over might possibly have something to do with putting extra stress or pressure on the eye, which will be recovering for some time after the operation.

  2. I too had the impression that my untreated eye had worsened after my first operation but at the six week checkup I said I was willing to have the second at short notice and was back in within a month. Best thing I’ve ever had but still trying to sort the close work such as reading. Best of luck.
