|Can you see it?|
This is what the surgeon had for me after surgery. Actually, I woke with this on my right eye.They gave me a little zippered pouch with another patch/cover for the eye that had the cataract removed. It keeps me from sticking my finger in my eye and rubbing. It also keeps me from pressing my eye into my hand as I lie. Well, that is what they said, but I never lay my face on my hand and never have.
I have a bit of trouble walking with this on my eye, held on by inch-wide paper tape. So, I leave the tape and patch in my bed and tape the patch on after I am in bed.
Notice the little slits on each end of the patch. It appears a person can us this like a pirate's patch by tying a piece of cloth through the slits. There are also little holes. I suppose an eye has to breathe. These holes must be eye nostrils.
I want to know a few things. Did your surgeon/nurses give you a little zippered pouch for your cataract surgery and recovery supplies? This one had places on each end to attach a strap. Did you get eye drops, tape, and two patches? I am wondering if this is a universal practice.
