* RECUPERATING FROM EYE SURGERY *

Have I mentioned anything about needing eye surgery?? I don't think I did...

I have had double-vision for SEVEN MONTHS. I was given every test imaginable, had 3 MRI's, and tons of blood tests. After seeing all kinds of specialists, and wearing my prescription glasses with special "prisms", it was determined that I needed eye surgery to correct the problem. 


This photo shows what the "prisms" look like on glasses. It amazed me that looking through these lines gave me correct vision, although it wasn't perfect. They are made out of soft plastic and just "stick" to the lens...only one lens. 
After going through 3 different kinds in a short period of time, that's when it was decided I needed surgery. I am healing well and haven't been in any pain, although I look awful! 



I'd never seen any other kind of "prism" other than the pyramid shaped ones we had in school...

AND the ones in the movie "Pollyanna" 
with Hayley Mills!
I LOVE that movie and as a child I never could figure out why all the grown ups didn't like her cheerfulness! I'm also a Pollyanna and proud of it! 💗

  1. Do you know I have never seen Pollyanna?
    Glad your surgery went well. I have a tear in my vitreous gel and am hoping that surgery isn't required.

  2. Glad to hear your eyes are fixed. Hubby just had catarct surgery on both eyes. I can't imagine double vision.
