Eye update and more

I had surgery again last Friday on my eye.

Here's the update.

I just made yet another phone call to the eye doctor because my vision is doing the same thing after the initial touch-up surgery about a month ago.

I'm asking for prayer on this. I was really concerned going into the surgery last Friday and my stress level is high once again as double vision is slowly returning in my distance eye. I should have left things alone and never gone for the touch up.

On another note, please take a look at my other blog:

I'm asking for people's help in spreading the word about this project. If you have a blog, can you post a link to the project site, or if you're on Twitter place a post about it. I'm trying to get the word out to get photographers on board.

I appreciate your prayers.

Prayer request!!

A little over two weeks ago I had my left eye's LASIK "touched-up". Well, things went wrong and I am going in tomorrow to have them "fix" it.

I went to the Doc last week because my vision was getting worse in my distance eye, the eye they did the touch up surgery on. It was only during the exam, when they had me cover my right eye, that I noticed I was seeing double in my distance eye now and there is no range that is clear. The tech could not get a prescription that allowed me to see without the double vision and clearly.

The Doc came in and was able to get a prescription a bit better, but still very blurry. He then he shone the really bright light in my eye to examine it and I could not see that light AT ALL!! It was only when he placed the magnifier over the light that I could see it.

After examining my eye for about five minutes he explained to me what happened.

When they go in to do a touch up, sometimes when they place the flap back into place, corneal cells from the outer part of the incision "seep" under the corneal and begin to grown. He didn't sound concerned and I wasn't concerned.

That was, until I got the paperwork in the mail to sign for the next surgery.

The paperwork states that it is not uncommon for this to require multiple surgeries to fix and there is a chance that it could lead to needing a cornea transplant.

Trying NOT to freak out. I have been struggling in school as a result of these past two weeks because I can't see properly and have a headache almost all the time.

If you could please lift this up in prayer, I would greatly appreciate it. My surgery is scheduled for 11:40 tomorrow morning.
