third time’s the charm

I’m having eye surgery.


Yes, again.

Eye surgery #1 was to repair the double vision and move my actual eyeball so the pupil was centered. The surgery was successful BUT it damaged a muscle and caused my eyelid to droop. Like ridiculously.

Eye surgery #2 was to try to repair the droopy eyelid. There was some improvement but now the droop has returned and has gotten so severe it impares the vision fixed in surgery #1.

So. on Friday I’ll have eye surgery #3. To be very aggressive in the droop issue. If this doesn’t work? I’m going to staple my eyelid open and use paper clips to prop my eye open.

I expect to be written up the Ophthalmology Journal.

    That must be so frustrating Anissa. Praying that this takes care of things with your eyes once and for all.
