I am not sure if this is the correct place to post this or if it has been discussed before but here goes.
Yesterday I had a preop assessment for cataract surgery which meant drops were put in my eyes to dilate the pupils. My pupils remained enlarged and fixed for six hours which meant my vision was not anywhere near it’s best resulting in a really bad fall flat on my face again, I always land on my poor face. If ever the doctors needed convincing that we are totally reliant upon our eyes to keep us upright I am a great example! I coped for about three hours but then my brain obviously went into meltdown and I fell. There were no trip hazards, it was a level floor and one that I navigate easily every day. The only difference yesterday was my eyes were not able to function correctly. I guess I should have stayed at home all day until the effects of the drops wore off, lesson learned the hard way as usual!
