You are in my thoughts and prayers. My vision was four fingers at six foot. After six surgeries my vision is good enough to to hunt using a scope. Stay positive.

Apparently not my Friend...

Surgery went "Very Well" according to the Eye Doc.
Interesting (sort of) process, in which you are actually awake...
Spooky might be a better word...

All the fluid was drained out of the eye, the inside of the eye "roughed up" to give something for the retina to attach to, then a gas ball inserted and the eye stitched closed. Weeps a lot... :shock:

Spent overnight down in Victoria, and of course did not sleep due to strange bed / discomfort / worry. Only good thing was I got to watch (one eyed) the movie Tombstone again while laying around :D

Met the Doc again today.
He pulled the bandages off, and when the eye opened, NADA :shock:
This is expected he said. Conducted a detailed exam of yesterday's work, and pronounced it excellent. Suggested sight will gradually come back over the next 2 to 6 weeks. Have to stay in darkened rooms, and for the next 72 hours flat on my back with head in a particular position (that causes the gas ball to squeeze against the contact points where the retina was re-attached to promote adhesion). Not supposed to look at the computer, so this will likely be a sign-off for a few days...

Still have the fingers crossed & wanted to thank all those who offered their kind words of support...

Matt, did the Dr mention if you have to stop shooting heavy recoiling rifles?
