So quick update, vision is MUCH improved! I was reading small print on a bottle the other day and realized I didn't have my glasses on! Still waiting until the fall for the right eye to be done. NOT with the same guy.

Did some research on this shadow business I have been experiencing in the corner of my eye close to my temple along with seeing a dark crescent shadow which I thought might have been the edge of the lens. A quick google search "shadow in corner of eye after cataract surgery" revealed it's a real thing. If only my surgeon told me about it instead of just telling me it's inflamation :rolleyes:

Turns out about 20% of the population experiences this, it's called negative dysphotopsia. (I was also experiencing positive dysphotopsia which is light refraction, especially after sleeping)

This too has been improving I mostly only notice it in artificial lighting, especially overhead light. Should soon be cleared up entirely.

Thanks again for all the good wishes :)

Thanks for that whole post. A bit of a slog but sounds like things are coming together finally and the result's approaching what you envisioned (sorry).
Never a bad time for good news.
:D

Great to hear everything is continuing to improve Gypsy. Prayers for full recovery and success with the next surgery also.
