I returned to the hospital to have another go with the lens. Still no luck. The optometrist who I saw tried to put the lens in for me and couldn’t do it. She found someone with more experience who got it in. It certainly made a difference. It took away all the refracted rubbish that I see. I was able to see large objects around the room as well as the sheen on Jasmine’s coat. Not a lot many would say but it would make such a difference to me.
Not sure what the next step is but I do know it’s frustrating. There is a lens there with my name on it which actually benefits me but I can’t get the thing into my eye!
The ironic thing is that I can’t get the lens in probably because I can’t see to do it! If anyone has any non-visual tips for putting in a large hard lens, I’d be more than happy to hear them!
