Saw Cornea Specialist

I'm good!  Out of the contact lens bandage which I think was irritating me.  She did say it had debris on it.

Artificial tears over 4 times a day and ointment at night.  She sees me in 3 weeks, and then I see the regular eye doctor 3 weeks after.  I don't want to get a prescription and then have to go back and get another a few weeks later.

Thank you for prayers and concern.  I was a bit scared.


Friday Eye Update

I have finished the steroid eyedrops.  I am down to an NSAID drop a day, artificial tears in both eyes 4 times a day, and antibiotic eyedrops 4 times a day.

Vision is no longer cloudy but have a major blur going on.  A little disturbed because they took a $120 copay and insurance says it's $25. That always comes out in the wash with them not charging for after care or getting a check from Aetna. Occasionally I have to call the billing department to get it together.  

Had to make that call to Medtronic yesterday and to my diabetes doctor (old one) today.

However, I love my insurance. 


Eye update

Doing well.  Better than yesterday, not as much photosensitivity and better on the blur I think.  So much better than before doctor saw me.  I am attributing the blur to the contact lens bandage.

No pain, but I'm sure that's because of the NSAID eye drops.


Day after Repair

Woke up very photo sensitive and with two very dry eyes.  Put artificial tears in each eye.

Marked each of the bottles with a sharper to indicate which I take.  One is once a day, two are twice a day.  I have a feeling that it doesn't matter how often I use artificial tears as long as I wait 10 minutes between drops so as not to wash out the others.

Pain is a very low buzz if that, more photo sensitive than anything.  That eye isn't as clear as after the repair but loads better than before the repair.

Did do a conformation class with Summer last night, but quit as soon as I started sweating.  About 50 minutes in.


Getting my eye repaired

At a cornea specialist and she doesn't think the dental procedure cause the eye issue. I have had dry eye issues before. She is doing a debradement and putting in a contact lens bandage. 

They assure me that it will hurt but the contact lens will help that.

 I promise I will put tears in my eye from now on.


Eye is getting better #t2doc #diabeteslinkup

I’m not 100% but I’m not having sharp pain and I am not as photo sensitive.  It’s still blurry and I still have quite a few drops left.  The other eye is much better since I’ve been doing artificial  each time I treat the injured eye.

The cause – dental surgery is also healing up.

i do have an appointment with a cornea specialist inhe morning. 


Lapband checks out fine

I haven’t had my lapband looked out in over a year.  Partly because the place i was getting it done went out of business.  Seems the principal owners have been charged with a crime.

I went back to the surgeon who did the procedure originally, as the company who I went to went out of business.  Sensing a theme.

It checked out fine.  I think they tested the port, as they numbed the area it was at, and had me swallow barium  We all watched everything work, and it does work correctly.

I’m quite ambivalent about lapband.  I never have been that happy with it but it does help with the binge eating – I still binge, but can’t eat as much food.  I can also choose not to eat easier.
