My Latest Eye Surgery

The eye procedure went OK. There was no pain but it was very uncomfortable. They numbed both eyes and attached a large glass/plastic lens to the eyeball with grease and then fired 40 laser blasts into each eye. The purpose was to create bubbles in the fluid that, when they went out through the drain gland, would stretch it open. That is the theory anyway. I go back in about 8 weeks to see if it worked and if I can stop the glaucoma drops (2 per eye per day. She says she can do the process again if required. I will do it again but will not look forward to it.

I am feeling good today. It knocked the heck out of me yesterday and I slept most of the afternoon/evening. I am back to 99% today!

I have to add that I have never experienced a headache like that. They warned me and suggested I bring some Tylenol's but I forgot. The throbber lasted several hours and was the main reason I went to sleep.


  1. Is this procedure related to the glaucoma or the cataract surgery? Hopefully it will help.

    1. Glaucoma, nothing to do with the cataract surgery except that it put it in the back seat and became the most pressing issue. Now that it is over They can go back to working on the cataract surgery that because of the cloudy film over the lens, was not a complete success.

  2. Glad to hear of some hopeful prognosis.

  3. Hopefully this will be the end of your Glaucoma problems and you'll be able to travel more freely.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.
