macular pucker surgery recover



By about July 15, 2010 or so, it seemed to be the case that the vision in my left eye had improved even more since the surgical procedure.  Since the surgery was on April 8, this is about the three-month mark.  I've read previously that there may be improvements at 3 months, and again at 6 months, so I am pleased, and I am glad I had the surgery. I go back to the retina doc on August 30, and we'll see if I'm right about this improvement or not.

It seems strange, but my left eye now sees much better than my right.  This is certainly quite a change from before, when my right eye had to pull the other one along.  The left eye is better for distance, they're about equal at intermediate, and the right eye wins for reading distance!

I wrote an article about this.
