Cataract Surgery – What Can I Expect?

It took another four days for Vinay to retain the normal vision. The doctor prescribed three types of eye-drops and asked him to have the eye drops at least four times a day. As doctor insisted that he should refrain from watching television, reading books and working on the computer, Vinay felt bored. For the first two days it does not matter much. Most of the time, Vinay lied down with his eyes closed and did not strain his eyes. Once the redness of the eyes cleared, and the swelling on the eye-lids subsided, Vinay could not stay inside home. After his bath in the morning, Saranya helped him to medicate the eye with the eye-drops. He took rest with the eyes closed for a while.

Contact lens wearing became increasingly difficult. By the evening, I would just take out my lenses and read without glasses or contact lenses by pressing the book up against my nose. I was heading back to where I was at age 9 before anyone knew I couldn’t see very well.

I always heard that if you didn’t wash the salt off of your car, it was rust, and the detrimental effect was immediate. Not true. It’s okay to not wash your car after every snow storm. Everyone else’s car will look a hot mess too. Do give it a rinse, though, if the temperature gets close to the freezing mark. And when you stop to get gas, use the windshield cleaner to clean off your windows, lights, mirrors, and any area you might brush against getting into the car.

On the day of testing they took me to a space and put few eye drops for cataract surgery into my eyes. They were anesthetics to numb my eyes for what but to come. After thirty minutes they took me to a different room with all these gadgets. Some had been familiar, like the one particular that tests your eyesight and its strength, just like if you go for glasses replacement (cannot keep in mind the name in the machine). Initially I thought they were going to perform the LASIK Eye Surgery suitable there and then. What they did then was basically and actually pocking me using a pen searching device that measures the size and shape of my eyes.

Low Contrast: This is not a new concept for most people. The pixilated nature of the objects on a computer screen engenders low contrast. This is especially true of text on computer screen. Studying objects of low contrast causes eye strain, which can lead to CVS.

If you have run out of shaving cream and you don’t want to use soap to shave your legs because of the drying effect, then use hair conditioner! Coating your legs with conditioner before shaving will soften the hair and make it easier to shave, leaving the legs feeling very soft and silky.

A “hot spray” is a great investment if you wish to protect your hair from the harsh heat of hair dryers. This is usually found in the beauty section of stores such as Target or Walmart and is quite useful at helping the hair dry quicker and preventing split ends. Moisture is locked into the hair cuticle and left smelling good too.
