So I have never thought how to open one eye and close the other eye. This time I got it. I went into the surgery room. The nurse and optometrist put some eye drops and gave two shots to numb my right eye lid, preparing me for the surgery. My eye lid became numbed and then closed. So I was seeing nothing since my other eye was covered by a green cloth. Actually, the rest of my face was covered with the cloth. Only my right eye and its surrounding facial area were left open. So I could see nothing, except feeling the doctor's hands and motions. But as to how the surgery took place, I wasn't sure. I didn't know how long it took for the surgery to be done, but I guessed 20 minutes, maybe. Then I got up from the patient's bed and sat up. My doctor was talking to me, showing me what he got from under my eye lid and telling me what to do after the surgery. Upto this point, I was still nervous, somewhat, but when the doctor was walking out the surgery room, I felt released and happy that it's done. I got down from the bed and quickly exited the room. The nurse told me to sit and wait for further instruction. Meanwhile, I sat on a chair and used my right palm to press my eye with a white cloth. The doctor asked me to press hard, so it would suppress the blood vessel to prevent bleeding. Few minutes later, the nurse came and put some eye drops into my eye. Then I kept suppressing my eye with the white cloth. The nurse came back with a nicely folded facial tissue to dry my eye. Then she made an appointment with me for follow up and asked me to go pick up my medicine. I kept my hand covering my eye with the white tissue when picking up my medicine and walking out to my boyfriend's car. I sat in the car, removed the white tissue and looked into the mirror--one eye closed and the other eye open. I looked odd and funny. My right felt so innocent and closed involuntarily.
