Cornea Update - December 2015

2 likes

Dear Fans:

On Thursday (December 17, 2015) I had surgery on my left eye again. As you may recall, in May 2014, I had a corneal transplant operation. The 2014 transplant was successful, but some uneven scarring developed around the cornea edge, forming a little ridge which prevented the eye from tolerating a contact lens.

So, they did a “wound revision” procedure which smoothed out the scar. The doctor also mentioned that he scraped away some of the tissue, but I tried to pretend I didn’t hear him say that.

It took a long time to find a surgery date that worked for the doctor’s availability and for my recording/touring schedule. Actually we hadn’t planned on doing this operation until February 26, 2016. But, they had a cancellation this week, and so we got it done 2 months early! 

The surgery was much easier this time, because I was familiar with the routine, and it was a less complicated procedure. The discomfort has been minimal, just some sensitivity to light, and voices in my head instructing me to steal the Hope Diamond.

Anyway, the surgery went very well, and I now have 7 tiny sutures in my eye (last time I had 15!). As the eye heals, these sutures will be removed one by one over time to make sure the corneal surface stabilizes into a smooth curve. I will have follow-up suture checks with the doctor for the next few months. If all goes well, then by probably April 2016 my eye will be ready to wear a contact lens, at last!

Here’s a photo I took today of my eye, I kind of look like I was beat up. You can see some of the cornea sutures, which are the black lines radiating out to the left. You’ll notice my eye isn’t as bloody bloody as it was after the corneal transplant; I’m sort of bummed. You might also notice my luscious long lashes, which are actually caused by a genetic condition called Distichiasis. That’s right, ladies, I have a double-row of eyelashes!

Obviously, I’ve been waiting for this repair surgery for a very long time, and I am so happy it’s finally been done! I’d like to once again thank my fans who have supported me and my eye over the past couple years. I will keep you posted on my progress, and I look forward to seeing this screen clearly soon so I can finally get back to writing my "Atlas Lounged" book! I hope to have the book finished in a few months! :)

Corneally,

MJD
