It's stable for now. My doctor told me that the surgery I had is not considered a cure. So far, so good.

My "blebs" are a perfect breeding ground for infections. My eyes are almost constantly irritated.

bleb = a blister of inner ocular fluid under the conjunctiva to releave the pressure in my eye.

Yeah, pretty gross., Better than blindness though.

The worst part was the surgeries - I had to be awake to avoid the REM that happens during anesthesia.

Getting your eye cut open hurts like all hell. You might not have guessed that on your own, so I thought I would warn you.

Each of my Iris's has a wedge cut out of the top - it looks pretty weird. Slightly cat-like pupils.

Believe me, I was trippin out after the first surgery. I was begging for anesthesia, but my Doc said that it could cause him big complications.

Yeah, scalpel on eyeball is truly messed up. Scared the crap out of me. It's a good thing they strapped me down. My whole body went rigid both times. Absolutely the worst pain I will ever feel without passing out.

Local anesthetic - HA! They knocked me out for a couple of minutes to shoot my eye up, then woke me back up to be tortured. ;l

So the lazer changed the color of your eyes? What a trip . . .

Oh yeah, and when I woke up, my eye was basically pulled out of the socket and held in a "block", as my doctor told me. That was also quite bizarre.

I don't know for sure - like I said they knocked me out to shoot it up and pull it out. I'm not totally sure what they put on the surface.

I'm guessing they did what they could, but oh man, it wasn't near enough.

Yeah, on the day of the second surgery, I was not very happy. I guess I did okay though. My doctor told me my pulse never rose above 60 bpm.

I remember the first time they were all laughing at something I said when I finally came around. I only remember saying "damn, that's some strong shit" - which they all laughed at, too.

It's all fun and games until the cutting starts.

OK I'm ready to move on. Sorry, to get so graphic - that's a fun set of memories there.

This was 12 years ago, now. I wonder what they do these days? instead of the Trebeculectomy?
