Better Eye Picture

My friend Eric Quade purchased an amazing new camera. So I had him take a better picture of my eye. This picture is pretty darn impressive for him not even having a macro lense.

As you can see most of the redness is out of my eye. Even though I'm holding my eye open with my fingers you cant see the anchor points for the cutting guide, but they are way less red as well.

You can get a good sense of the 17 anchor stitches still in my eye that holds the new cornea on. There are a few other tension stitches that are too hard to see yet though.

My vision has improved from 20/500 (a rat's is 20/600) to 20/50 and 20/30 (with pinhole assist). Which is pretty damn amazing. I still have a double image due to the astigmatism but that's normal. My vision should finally become fixed at or around the 6 month mark and then it will be contact or glasses time.


  1. Holy crap that is awesome. Very interesting, thanks for sharing.

  2. Awesome! glad your eye is doing better!

    What camera did he get?
    I have a Canon Powershot S5IS which takes pretty bad ass Macro images without any additional lens. I love my camera.

  3. Whoa. I clicked on the image and it turned into a MASSIVE size of your eyeball.

    Very creepy, yet very interesting.

    You can see the stitches when the picture is full blown and your eye is the size of my head.
