Detached Retina

February 3rd, 2013

I have a detached retina in my right eye. I’m having surgery for it this week. The surgery will reduce my computer time for the next several weeks, which means it will take longer than normal for me to reply to emails, approve blog comments from first-time commenters, and reply to blog comments.

I will either remove or update this post when things return to normal.

Update (April 25)

Things haven’t returned to normal yet, but my condition has improved enough that I can check my email at least once a day and I can be on the computer for 30-45 minutes at a time. I should be able to reply to emails and deal with blog comments within 24 hours. I’ll post another update when things return to normal.

At this point I’ve recovered from the surgery. All that’s left is for the vision to return in my right eye. The vision is returning, slowly but surely.

Update (June 26)

My condition has improved to the point that I can reply to emails and deal with blog comments like I did before the surgery.

    Good luck with your surgery. I hope that the detachment is in just the retinal periphery and not close to the fovea. If so, you should be able to program again very quickly.
