When Yuan came out she was asleep, and upon waking she was fretting because she couldn't open her eyes. But this was already told to her before the surgery, so she calmed down. As a post-surgery gift, Yuan got a stamp album, something which she has been requesting for a while. She couldn't see it, but she could touch it and count the pages in it.
Today we went for the post-operative checkup and I was delighted and thankful to hear the doctor said that Yuan is doing very well. Perfectly straight eyesight, no more squinting upon testing.
For this week, Yuan has to refrain from swimming and avoid getting bath water in her eyes. Besides that she needs to apply eye shields when she goes to sleep to prevent accidental rubbing of eyes. We can see that the corners of her eyes are still red from the surgery scars, Yuan calls them vampire eyes.
Now I learnt that all kids before entering primary school, should have a routine eye check up with an ophthalmologist. Another thing I am thankful about is, when Wei had his eye check up yesterday, he has perfect eyesight! No problems, despite all the computer games, iPad games, tv etc......
