All Is Well
A follow-up post to "Secondary Cataract":
The YAG laser procedure yesterday went as expected and lasted less than five minutes.
My vision this morning is well defined now that the dilation drops have worn off, and I see better than I have in several months. Post-procedure care involves prednisolone eye drops four times a day for a week and, the following week, another visit with the ophthalmologist.
The only nasty surprise was the cost. Upon admission to the surgery center, I had to write a check for $803 as a deposit; my health-insurance policy is one of catastrophic coverage. Whatever the cost, it is small when one's vision is at stake!
Back to work today and to grading the papers that have piled up during my period of severely impaired vision the past few weeks.
