IT MAKES IT ALL WORTH IT
I made a patient's wife cry today. Let me explain. This gentleman in his 50's hasn't seen 20/20 in years. He's had Fuch's dystrophy that required PKP in the right eye 3 years ago. His resultant cornea has 6 diopters of astigmatism. I ordered a contact lens for him last week. They came in and with the contact lens in his eye he's seeing 20/20! His wife cried. I almost cried too because ordinarily my post-PKP contact lenses are a disaster.
But I got a little teary eyed because it has been years of Fuch's dystrophy, and 3 years of post-op PK, and now for the 1st time since he was in his 30's, he's seeing 20/20. It makes it all worth it!
