Well, about the biggest thing that happend at the eye doctor's today was getting the stitches out of my eye. I almost had a heart attack when the doc said he was going to take the stitches out. I thought I could not do that without sedation but I did it with just getting the eye numb.

But how is your vision? Was the surgery a success? I hope so! And glad the stitch removal wasn't too bad with just numbing. Well done!

Hi Mary,

My vision has improve some since the surgery but it's still has not finished improving to it's fullest or the fullest that it might improve. The surgery was a success in the fact that the hole in my retina has closed up. It can take anywhere from 6 months to a year for the eye to fully get better vision.

Thanks for asking.
