Days leading up to surgery

In the days leading up to surgery, I wore my glasses as instructed as well as put in the prescribed drops. I was prescribed Pred Forte 4 times a day to reduce inflammation, Zymaxid 3 times a day for antibiotic coverage, and Polytrim 4 times a day for MRSA protection since I work in a medical environment. I am usually putting drops in patients eyes, so now I was on the other side. I made a little excel spreadsheet so I could keep up with how many times and what drop I was putting in.
The Tuesday before my surgery I had Dr. Benfield perform a cycloplegic (dilated) refraction on me. It came out I was overminused, but I already knew I was. So now it became a waiting game until Friday!
