Scott's surgery went well last Wednesday, according to the eye surgeon. Although they sure didn't give us a good idea of how long the recovery would take. Scott thought he'd be back to normal in a couple of days, but his eye is still quite sore. He is going back on Wednesday to have the stitches removed. I get irritated when I get an eyelash in my eye, so I can't imagine having stitches on my cornea for 2 whole weeks!
He had a really nice white eye patch (bandage) on after the surgery, but I didn't take a picture of that, unfortunately. Here is a picture of him the day after with a make-shift bandage I taped on because he was getting tired of trying to keep one eye closed while he was working:
And here's a picture of his eye a couple days after the surgery:
For those who asked about the surgery... Scott had something called Pterygium, which is a growth over the cornea, most often due to long-term exposure to UV rays. He had a surgery to remove the growth. We found this video of a Pterygium Surgery on YouTube:
