6 week aniv this Fri

Postby Ted61 » Wed Apr 18, 2007 1:22 pm

As expected and hoped for, my eyes continue to improve. I drive to a nearby city every 2 weeks during darkness and am beginning to notice quite a difference as time progresses. I use night driving as my gauge since that's where I experience the most visual difficulty. During my night-time drive early this morning, halos and starbursts were minimal and focusing was nearly as good as I had before surgery (pupils were large, I assume).

Just out of curiosity, I wonder if there are any others out there who are at my elevated age and how your recovery/healing process is commencing. I am 61 and know that I am fairly old to have had the surgery. Comments are appreciated.

Ted I am glad to hear you are doing well. You give me hope. I am only 5 days post op and rather a basket case. My far vision is wonderful, but my near vision and midrange are terrible. Did you have any of this and how long did it take to improve. I understood I would need readers but was not prepared to be this profoundly out of focus close up and midrange. Any thoughts you have will be appreciated.
