Dry Eyes, I Have Come To Appreciate, Should Not Be Overlooked.

As l have chronicled here I had cataract surgery done on both my eyes — twice on my right eye — between November 2020 & mid-January 2021. I am pleased with the outcome. The surgeries were done at OCB, i.e., Ophthalmic Consultants of Boston, & I lucked out in getting assigned to the OUTSTANDING Dr. Theodor Sauer. Wow! What a doctor & a laudable human being. We was beyond great. Well 4-days prior to the surgeries & a month after each, I had to use medicated 3-in-1 eye drops (that I have already spoken about). Once those eye drops were done Dr. Sauer was insistent that I kept on using lubricated eye drops to keep my eyes from getting dry.

He was very adamant — in the nicest possible way. Explained that most folks, which included I, did not appreciate the significance & worth of keeping one’s eyes well lubricated — especially in the winter. He recommended these & gave me a some samples. Funnily enough a previous eye doctor had recommended the same brand.

I value my eyes. So, I will do whatever I am asked to do. So, I have been using drops, daily, for the last few weeks. They definitely make a difference. Easier on the eye.

Then today I got this e-mail newsletter basically stressing what Dr. Sauer had told me.

So, I wanted to share it with you. Take note. Don’t mess with your eyes.
