Mom’s Surgery

So, my mom had her eye surgery done yesterday and it all went fine. My mom has glaucoma which refers to a group of eye conditions that lead to damage to the optic nerve. This nerve carries visual information from the eye to the brain.
In most cases, damage to the optic nerve is due to increased pressure in the eye, also known as intraocular pressure (IOP).

She had to have the surgery done because the lens in her left eye had dropped and this has affected her vision. She actually drove with sunglasses at night and she told me that it had helped improve her vision. Haha.. Crazy lady!

Hopefully her eye will recover fine but only time can tell. 🙂

And glaucoma is also hereditary so, when I went home to visit my mom a couple of weeks ago I had my eyes checked. My eyes are fine but I would still have to go for check ups every so often. The tests are quick but not fun…

Anyway, praying for my mom to get better soon. So that we can go shopping and for massages. 😛
