Thanks. It's rough stuff, but surgery has a high success rate.

The doctor had me get a cataract removed, and I'll get retina surgery for real on Tuesday the 17th. I'll be laying on my stomach face down for a week.

The retina surgery went well. The vision in my right eye is gradually improving. I'm in better spirits now. It's going to take a couple months to fully recover. It's a slow process with such delicate surgery.

I am on the road to recovery. My latest checkup was this past Monday. The vision in my right eye is back up to 20/80 from 20/200. The eye and retina are healing well. In the original surgery, they put silicone oil in the eye to help heal and keep the retina in place. When I go back in 6 weeks, I'll get checked again, and I'll most likely get a date to get the oil flushed out of the eye and further improve vision.

I may very well end up getting prescription glasses and special contact lenses. I don't mind corrected vision. It's better than NO vision.

I had to have corrective surgery when I was a kid because my eyes wouldn’t uncross. People always tell me to get lasik so I don’t need glasses but I tell them first that I like my glasses and second that I’m disqualified due to my earlier surgery. Like you said The Punisher, I would rather have corrected vision that none at all.

Oh, and also, my girlfriend thinks I look very handsome with my glasses so works for me!

I've been told glasses also make you look very smart.

My most recent checkup was on the 11th, last Thursday. Vision in my eye is back to 20/60. Pressure from the silicone oil is way down. My next appointment is March 4th as a pre op for removing the silicone oil. March 19th will be the procedure for removing the oil. I'll have a gas bubble put in to stabilize the eye. I'll have to lie flat on my stomach for a week or so while the bubble dissolves and natural fluids go back in the eye.

There's finally some light at the end of this very dark tunnel. I'm glad I have the great people on this forum for support. I'm a bit of an oddball in real life, and don't have many friends, but I do have plenty of acquaintances. I'm trained in science and can write pretty well, something I think most guys don't want to do. I have been confused with a biker on numerous occasions.

Thanks to everyone for being my friend on this forum.
