    Good, glad to read about your "dramatic improvement" after only three days. Here's to even more improvements in the coming days and weeks.

    Thank you. Day 5. Had contact lens removed. Eye felt pretty scratchy afterwards for a couple of hours. Vision tested out to 20/30. Some haze evident.

    Visit to Herzig, day 12. Back on regimen of steroid drops (Forte) after a break of three days. Predictably, the right eye is quite far sighted at present. Once again getting headaches as my brain tries to figure out which eye to use for vision. Tomorrow is last day for 4 drops a day, then a week of 3 drops a day, etc. until the drops stop and if like last time, the far sightedness will diminish rapidly.

    You said you visited "Herzig." Would that be the Herzig Eye Institute in Toronto?

    Default 6 weeks after surgery

    6 week follow up at Herzig. No haze evident. Healing looks good. Vision is still farsighted at 20/30 with correction to 20/20.

    6 weeks after first procedure in October/2010 was moving to myopia. This I guess is good news as I am still far sighted. It was explained to me that corrected vision to 20/20 means the potential is there once healing is finished to be at 20/20. Over correction this time to learn from past healing and hopefully end up just right.

    Continuing with Vitamin C. Eye formula tablets, fish oil tablets. Putting in lots of hydrating drops even though no dry eye syndrome this time around.

    Here's hoping you reach 20/20 soon.

    3 month follow up. Good news. 20/20 uncorrected vision!!! No haze. No double vision when shooting. I'm so happy. A bit nervous considering that last time, the correction was like a pendulum going from quite far sighted to quite near sighted.

    Thanks to all with their good wishes.

    Good, I'm glad that RK surgery was so successful. Now enjoy the view.

    Has your corrected vision remained stable, martyc?

    Yes, the vision seems stable. Anxious to try it out at a tournament hunting event in Ohio next weekend. Double vision appears to be gone for good.

    Vision actually seems to improve as the day goes ahead. Very little in the way of fluctuations.

    Next check up in 3 months...

    Wow. Collin2 made a similar comments in another thread and I just quoted the same thing. How weird. Well, ask the same question and you'll get the same answer. I shouldn't be surprised that someone who calls themselves "PeriBrown" is a fan of Hitchhikers.

    Nice picture of Peri Brown. What's with the flames, though? It doesn't matter, really. Look at her pretty eyes.

    I wanted to add a picture that showed Nicola Bryant's brown eyes better, but it was really hard to find a close up. Finally I came up with this . . .

    That's a great picture, herking. A British cowgirl with brown eyes.

    I'm guessing by the thin layer of the white stuff that snow is a novelty to the person who wrote in it. It's like they're saying "Hey look! Snow! For the first time!"

    Yeah, why else would you write "snow" in the snow?

    I had RK surgery in 1981 and it was a complete failure ... the pressure in my eyes is very low ... and when the cuts were made the pressure in my eyes would not hold the eye out so the eye healed in an uneven manner ... like a shower stall glass.

    Fact is the operation was done twice on both eyes ... they didn't realize the low pressure would cause this type of failure.

    I have struggled with glasses, soft lenses, and hard lenses ... never getting better than 20/40 sometimes 20/70 or such.

    One problem I have with hard lenses (gas permeable) is they make my eyes swell after 2 or 3 hours ... then I can't see squat even with glasses.
