I awake determined to check my medication instructions myself because I don't think Mr Neil has given the instructions correctly. Having to put the paper 1 inch from my left eye, which is still severely impaired, also hurts my right eye. But I know it's imperative to get my medication dosage correctly. The danger with overusing the steroid drops is that it can increase eye pressure and lead to complications like glaucoma.
I'm right. I'm to use the drops every two hours, during the day only.
The irony of this entire episode is that all the fully sighted people got the instructions wrong.
I still feel tired. I don't know if it's from the sedative or just the trauma of surgery, but while I was napping in the afternoon in the afternoon Mr Neil came by to read to me. He seemed to think that I should be feeling amazing, but I don't. In fact, the last thing I'm in the mood for is The Old Man & the Sea.
I just want to sleep...eye shield and all.
