This morning I had my cataract surgery. As I write this I am about 3 hours post-op, and my vision is still quite blurry, although better at distance than close. At the moment I am wearing my old prescription glasses as it is difficult to read the print on the computer with my operated eye. My eye, however, is still dilated from the procedure this morning, and I will add to this journal later on this evening after the pupil returns to normal. I feel some mild scratchiness from the incision and from the limbal relaxing incisions that were also performed, but that seems to already be starting to subside.
I have the Acrysof ReSTOR IQ model SN6AD1, 15D +3.0 Add
10PM -- now about 12 1/2 hours post-op. After instilling drops a few minutes ago, my eye scratchiness seems to have subsided somewhat, although there were periods earlier today when it was quite bothersome. My distance vision continues to improve, and intermediate and near vision is slightly better also, although I am still unable to type at a computer without the aid of my old prescription glasses. Looking forward to post-op exam tomorrow morning.
