10 years ago, I had an eye injury that required surgical repair and a viterectomy.
I still have no vision to the left of the visual field for my right eye.
3 years ago, I had to have a lens implant because I developed a cataract and that wouldn't have been a problem except there was a power cut during the procedure and by the time they rebooted all the kit, the anaesthetic wore off while they were still operating - I was not a happy bunny.
And now I'm back to being functionally blind in my right eye (good enough to navigate but can't read) due to a condition called Posterior capsule opacification that will require laser surgery.
I'm currently on my second sicky day due to headaches bought on my stupidly trying to read a set of very large documents that had text so small that I needed a magnifying glass and am getting tired of it already.
Has anyone had this sort of laser surgery and if so, what can you tell me about outcomes and recovery time?
