But..Gosh..! the surgery wasn't that easy at all..! The surgery was done under local anesthesia..they just put anesthetic drops into the eyes, and that's all. The prob is that you have to witness the whole surgical procedures on your eyes with the same eyes and you cant even blink or move your eye balls..Ohhh..that was verrry uneasy to me. They placed a glass shield like rim between the eyelids so that I wouldn't be able to blink... I felt really uncomfortable as I watched the surgeon cut a flap in my cornea and all the rest of it..I wont say it was painful..but really that was some uneasiness beyond words..Sometimes I thought I felt pain, but I might have imagined it..I don't know.
After the surgery, they just told me to wear the sun glasses and wait for sometime. Then after a while they checked my eyes again , said I'm perfectly okay, and I shall go home for the night. They told me to come for a check up on the following afternoon. Before I left the hospital that English lady told me to be prepared for a tough night. How very correct she was..!. That was the worst night in my life. I felt like as if thousands of knives were inside my eyes and I couldn't even fully open my eyes. My vision was all blurred and wet. I felt terrible.
When I woke up next morning, it was all fine, except that my eyes felt a bit heavy and sticky..But otherwise my eyes felt like new. My vision was damn clear!!. I was so happy that I instantly forgot the previous day's pain.. The surgeon checked my vision and said Its all very fine. As I was told, my eyes are very dry now and I have to follow up the drops to avoid eye ulcers. Now the post operative follow up is the tricky part.. I'm having to apply 3 different drops every 4 hours, avoid getting into dusty areas and also having to wear the cooling glasses whenever I go outdoors. Also I have to be careful enough not to rub my eyes. Well..so far so good and I'm now back to my routine life which is full of lectures, books, hospital..and all..
