I went into the Doctor this morning for my second post-op appointment. This time the eye is healing quite well, and Dr. Andrews is encouraged.
During the surgery, the epithelium from the center of the eye is removed. The laser modifies the eye, then the healing process begins. The skin heals from the center inwards, regenerating itself quickly. My left eye is healing well, but it is going to be many more weeks of attentiveness to the steroids and antibiotics. Also being conscious of how often I am on the computer.
I was displeased to wake up this morning with a cold. So I am fighting it with everything I have, and am planning on returning to work for half days the rest of this week.
