I woke up today slightly better than yesterday, but not quite as good as the first day. I was more sensitive to light today, and was seeing with a haze. It was as if there was a very white colored film over my eyes and everything had that whitish tinge. Or if you adjust the brightness on your television and turn it on 100%. Also, I can’t really read very well. I have the font on my monitor turned very large. Also, the left eye seems to be a little better than the right eye for me.
I did take out the band-aid contact lens today. I was 99% healed, but the doctor said it was fine. He says that I’m about 20/50 right now, but that will improve. It feels a little worse than 20/50 because of the haze though. He also said that my vision might fluctuate a little bit here and there for the next 6 weeks. Great. He kind of warned me about that earlier, but still sucks to hear again. It’s not going to fluctuate so bad that I can’t see one day and then the next I can. It will be more like from 20/20 to 20/30 or something like that. I guess I can deal with that.
My eyes have been extremely sensitive since taking the contacts out, but the doctor told me that would be the case. I have been putting in artificial tears every 30 minutes to keep my eyes from going dry. I am going to start using steroid drops tomorrow as well. Doctor says I’m healing well and things are as expected so far. That being said, I can read a little better now than I could this morning.
