Looking Through Waxed Paper
The accurate medical terminology was “whoa it’s like looking through waxed paper,” this from my ophthalmologist who said “there is a thick membrane…” She used additional jargon that by now quite frankly, I should understand but I still have to ask her to speak on a 3rd grade level.
My decreased vision was the result of this overgrowth of cells leading to the coating on the sack which contains the lens implanted during my cataract surgery from two years ago. The prognosis is very good and requires a simple laser procedure that will zap the membrane thus restoring my previous bad vision (which I’ve really, really come to appreciate).
Surgery is scheduled for November 3 which gives me plenty of time to plan <crickets> something.
Thanks again everyone for hanging in there with me. I gotta tell ya though, the office staff was pretty steamed that I brought all of you with me but they’ll get over it 😉 ~Steph
