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.
