Day 6-7

Monday was nothing spectacular, vision was a little better than the day before, but not leaps and bounds. I tried to get back to a normal routine but still needed a nap in the afternoon because my eyes were very tired from trying so hard to focus all day. I tried driving Monday afternoon. It did not go well. I could see well enough to know where the cars and people were and everything, but I felt like I was driving looking through a window that wouldn't defrost. I gave up a few miles in and made my husband drive, I was just too uncomfortable driving that way. That night was the first time I was out during the night and the lights made me crazy. I had major halos and starbursting going on with all the breaklight, headlights and street lights. I basically just left me eyes closed to avoid going insane.

Tuesday I had my next follow-up appointment with my eye doctor. I was really looking forward to having the contacts removed, they were starting to big me, but I was nervous knowing that some people have a vision set back once they are removed. I felt like I still had so far to go that I didn't want to deal with a set back! The doctor said my eye was healed, all the cells had grown back, but that I had a ridge down the center of my eye, as expected, and that's why everything is still foggy. My vision tested at 20/40 in my lieft eye and 20/25 in my right. I couldn't believe that my right eye was that much better, since I still felt like I couldn't see anything! It was good news though. He removed the contacts and sent me on my way. Sure enough my vision worsened through out the day until I was really blurry. I keep focusing on the fact that my vision recovery is on track, I just really didn't expect things to still be this foggy. A day at a time I guess...
