My long-awaited vitrectomy is almost here, yay.
It's practically an elective surgery, but in my case, my reading has greatly been affected since eye-scanning makes that vitreous blob move back and forth across my field of vision in my left (close-up) eye, and slows the process of reading. It's the same detachment that caused my retinal tear and partial detachment a couple years ago, and now finally, that debris can be removed.
It will be performed by the same Dr. Wehner who saved my retina with the laser repair and cryo treatments, but ultimately had to install the scleral buckle when one of the laser welds sprang a leak.
I go in Wednesday for my pre-op first to his office, so he can determine that the retina is secure, then on to the hospital for their paperwork and stuff. Then I'm back to work on Thursday. The actual surgery, I'll be awake for on Friday and should take about an hour. Dr. Wehner is the best, so no worries there, and there's no one on Earth who knows my left eye better than he.
Then I'll be recuperating over the weekend (8-9), Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday (10-12). Then I should be back to work on Thursday the 13th. I'll get more specific information on restrictions other than 'no driving' for a few days, but I wanted to mention it now, so that nobody worried if they didn't see me on Twitter or other places for a few days.
