My cataract surgery went well. I'm driving and back to work. My vision is a little wonky...the doctor said it could take about a week for the blurriness and halos to go away. But something that improved immediately is the color that I see!!
Everything is so bright. White is so white!! I tried to play around with a photo of some artwork from my bathroom...just to give an idea of the difference I'm seeing. If I cover the "new" eye I see the first photo. But if I look through the new eye, with the other one covered, I see the prettier look of the second photo. It's really incredible. It never occurred to me that color would change. It's like everything looked a little bit "aged" with the cataract in place. Of course, I guess that makes sense....my eyes are "aged"!
Right now I have to cover my left eye in order to see the bright, new color. But in a few weeks, after the surgery on the left eye, it'll be a whole, new, colorful world! I can't wait!
I picked out some paint and carpet colors last week...I better go look at them again with just my right eye! Hope I still like the colors I chose!
