Christopher wearing an eye patch and resting after his cataract surgery.
Hubby Christopher had a cataract surgery done at Singapore National Eye Centre (SNEC).
For a few months he was seeing triple images. He saw 3 ECLs whenever I appear before him! No wonder he was so stressed. :D
He was seeing multiple lights at traffic junctions and that was becoming dangerous for him to drive.
I accompanied him to Singapore National Eye Centre (SNEC). We consulted the best surgeon who was swarmed with patients every day so I am not going to post the surgeon's name. The surgeon doesn't even have time for meals. That busy. :P
On the day of the surgery, we arrived at the hospital before 8.30 am and was surprised to see a long queue of patients. The procedure took only 20 minutes. According to Chris, there was no pain but only drowsiness due to the sedation. He rested for an hour and a nurse taught us how to care for the eye for the next 2 weeks.
He had to wear the eye patch for a week.
looking stoned after the surgery .... Hello, it's your wife!
The next day we return for a review and was scheduled for subsequent reviews after 3 days, 7 days and 1 month.
The natural lens of Chris' eye is removed and replaced with a multifocal intraocular lens (IOL). After the surgery, Chris can now see far and near better without the aid of glasses or contact lens.
