The Continuing EYE saga

I went back to the eye doctor today. I have been seeing much better and my eyes seem to be healing better. However, lately I have noticed that I can see very clear from my right eye and not clear with my left. The eye doctor spent a lot of time with me today and looked at my chart and said what I knew. I am a weird one. They have not seen what is going on with my eyes in many patients.

My right eye started out at -1.25, after surgery it went to -1.5, and then to -1 and finally today it was at a perfect 0. It is the eye that had the abrasion, which seems to have healed very well.

My left eye started out at -1, after surgery it went to -.75 and then to -.50 and finally today it was at a lousy -2, worse than before surgery.

The doctor said there is no clear explanation and he has heard of this happening but not seen it happen before. He think my brain could have just sent a message to my eyes and they self corrected into mono-vision, where one eyes sees distance and one sees close up. The one good thing is that right now I don't have to have reading glasses. I have to go back in 3 months to see what is happening at that point and time and then we'll plan on what to do.

So again, I am a weird one with weird eyes.

I am sorry that you are still having problems with your eyes. I guess it wouldn't be funny if I asked you how many fingers I am holding up........

Hmmm. Well, I guess if they are going to do their own thing, your eyes chose the most handy, monovision. I hope they stay this way so you can read or else go back and do what they were supposed to do in the first place.
