It's always something........

Update on Kaley,, She is doing great. She is back to normal and eating and drinking and we are back to our daily walks with Merlin.

Something new for me though. I had cataract surgery on both eyes , the left one two years ago and the right one 1 1/2 years ago. I have had blurry vision on the right eye for about six months which was progressivly getting worse over the past months. I went to my opthamologist and this is what she found.

I went to the opthamologist yesterday and she finally found the problem I have with the blurring of my vision in the right eye. It is called POSTERIOR CAPSULE OPACITY. This occurs because lens epithelial cells remaining after cataract surgery have grown on the capsule. In some cases, if the condition progresses significantly, your vision may be worse than it was before cataract surgery. It can be treated with a treatment called YAG. It is a laser treatment. So this will probably happen after my next checkup in a few months. She said this show up in about 5% of patients that have cataract surgery and it usually shows up about a year and a half after the surgery. So of course it had to be me....
