I Can See Clearly Now…

…the floaters are gone.

Well not as clearly as I will be seeing once my eye isn’t dialated anymore. Things are slightly blurry but no black feathery objects are floating across my eye.

My particular issue was Asteroid Hyalosis: Asteroid hyalosis (AH) is a degenerative eye condition marked by a buildup of calcium and lipids, or fats, in the fluid between your eye’s retina and lens, called the vitreous humor.

The surgery went well and my follow-up was good. I go back next Monday to get another follow-up. This week I’m suppose to rest and not do anything strenuous. I shouldn’t bend over, pick up heavy objects and do anything that will jostle me like riding my lawnmower. I need to wear my eye patch at night so I don’t do anything to my eye in my sleep. Dr. G. told Dear to wash the dishes this week. Dear will also be on eye drop duty.

When my grands come to visit tomorrow I’ve been forewarned that Addy will be saying, “but why”, a lot. I’ll let her climb into my lap instead of lifting her.

My eyes will be in rest mode for the rest of the week, so I won’t be coming around to read blogs.

Thank you very much from the bottom of my heart for anyone who prayed for me. I was pretty calm for the whole time even before they gave me some happy sedation. I was conscious through out the whole procedure and declared afterward that it was way better then having dental work done. Our stay in a nearby hotel with valet parking and full service within the hotel worked out well for meals and being close to the eye clinic for my followup this morning.

We are back at home now and heating up to 99 for today and tomorrow before we have a little cooling off. We have smoke filled skies because of the brush fire that has grown to over 10,500 acres on the Colville Reservation that is west and south of us. The smoke from this fire is impacting air quality over a large area of eastern Washington.

Staying inside and relaxing sounds like very good medicine.

  1. So thankful for your great report, continue prayers for a quick recovery. I have had eye surgery your dr.’s orders sound like mine, rest and real.
    Blessings,

  2. I didn’t know you needed to have eye surgery! And I’m quite surprised that they could do something about the floaters…I have always been under the impression that nothing could be done for them…good for you! I had cataract surgery on both eyes about 6 years ago and the difference was astounding! Take good care of yourself let everyone wait on you! Prayers for quick healing!

  3. Glad the surgery is behind you and that all went well. Now let the healing begin! It sounds like ‘smoke season’ has arrived once again in your corner. Sorry to hear that. (You may not be seeing clearly for awhile yet!)

  4. Yay that that is behind you and that you can tell there’s improvement. I know that you have a busy month planned so rest now while you can.

  5. Ellen – well, I am clearly behind on the news over at your place. Sorry to hear about this condition, but glad that the surgery has gone well. Sounds like the perfect opportunity to be pampered by everyone – you don’t know when this chance will come around again! Speedy recovery to you, my friend!

  6. Ellen, SO glad your eye surgery went well ! I have signed up to receive updates and postings on your blog. Love hearing about life in Colville and seeing pictures . Sounds like you and Greg have adjusted well to the country life! Your little grandkids are such cuties! Glad that sweet Laura was able to come over and help out!

    Have a restful weekend!

  7. I’m so happy for you that this is done and that it looks like it was successful. I have a feeling some eye surgery is in store for me one day because of all the surgeries my mom has had. I’d rather go to the denstist,
    but as long as they can help our vision, that’s a lot to be thankful for.
