Ocular Redux

It’s almost a year since I had my eye zapped, and unfortunately the regression has been stronger than expected. So at least there’s a reason I’ve been having trouble the last month or so focusing on screen text. Most troubling is the return of my astigmatism, which means I can’t just get by with cheap reading glasses like I had hoped.

I have an appointment with the surgeon lined up and there we will decide if a second round is going to help much. If not, then it’s back to prescription glasses for me :(

UPDATE: After seeing the surgeon it looks like it’s not as bad as I thought, as part of the problem was some scarring/inflamation of the cornea which can be treated with eyedrops, so I probably won’t have to get more lasers shot at my eyeball just yet.

    That’s a shame. If your eyes change within a short time, is the repeat surgery free/discounted?

    btw, I very much like the new site layout! My only comment is that the page looks asymmetric and odd when you scroll beyond the right hand pane and it’s all black.

      In theory it should be covered, and I’m only going to consider more laser surgery if I don’t have to pay (since last time was such an ordeal)
