Two weeks and two days ago, on June 18th, I had corrective eye surgery. I have two eye conditions with my right eye which I have had all my life. One is called strabismus and the other is amblyopia...both go together sometimes, if you're unlucky. Strabismus is where your two eyes are not aligned, one or both might be crossed. And amblyopia is what happens to an eye sometimes when it's looking the wrong way for too long, it goes blind/partially blind. I can only see what I call colorful shadows with my right eye. I had surgery to straighten my eye, which involved moving one eye muscle forward and one back. There wasn't too much pain involved, mostly it was just uncomfortable and I was off of work for two weeks to let my eye heal up a bit since it was completely red. Unfortunately I will never have sight in that eye but it's now as straight as my right eye is and I couldn't be happier. The reason I'm posting about my surgery on MMC is because I was so nervous as I walked into the O.R. and while they were prepping me for surgery that as I layed there waiting to fall asleep, all I could think about was how this Christmas will be the first Christmas with my two eyes straight! It's the most wonderful gift!! Thinking about Christmas relaxed me and helped me through my surgery. Christmas IS wonderful!!
