Corneal Transplant

I had my corneal transplant surgery on 10/01/14 at Walla Walla General Hospital. It was performed by Dr. Arthur Giebel who is one of the top specialists in my area.
I was petrified! I prayed and had faith that God would make sure I was alright. Also, knowing that the surgeon is a man of God helped to put me at ease.
The procedure took about 4hrs from start to recovery. The doctor was pleased that he was able to preserve the base layer and at my follow-up today, I was able to see at 20/80. That’s amazing considering that I was legally blind before the surgery.
Its a bit uncomfortable when I have to put my drops in but otherwise, I’m not having any pain.
Thank God for the miracles of modern medicine.
