Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
How is your vision?
perfect - no change
It is not unusual to have some off and on aches after surgery. As long as your doctor didn't find any unusual inflammation on her exam I do not think you have anything to worry aboutg.
Isn't it amazing how bright colors and white things are since your surgery?
I haven't seen doc since 11/13. I'm following the instructions from that visit on tapering the prednisalone and stopping the nevanac
My pressure on 13th was 19
Sounds like a good plan to me.
and yes, everything is amazing since surgery!
19 is very good.
so the aching is just probably from not using the nevanac?
this is the first discomfort I've felt
No. It is probably from healing etc. Or it could also be from sinus issues as these tend to be referred to areas around the eye.
Nevanac is like tylenol for the eye....
the pred forte is about 1,000 times as strong
I have had some sinus off and on the past couple of weeks too
That is most likely it then....
it was just weird that it felt like my actual eye - and I figured it was from discontinuing the drops :)
Is there anythign I should watch for with the tapering down of pred? My eye isn't red or anything
It will be a month since surgery tomorrow - he said I could sleep without the shield and resume all my regular activities =- massages, chiropractor, everything? I'm free again?
You are free again!
No boxing though.....
never did that anyway haha
No. Nothing in particular you need to watch out for. Sounds like you are doing great.
I haven't worn eye make up for the month = I was afraid what would happen if I got eye makeup remover or soap in the eye
feel free to go back to all your Goth Makup and soap to your heart content
goth haha! you funny guy.
thank you so so much again - you're terrific!
My pleasure. Have a good evening.
