  1. I woke up blind in one eye this morning

    Sorry to hear about your continued eye troubles John!   I had surgery to repair a detached retina in one eye 5 weeks ago and then some laser "welding" to repair holes in the other one last week.   My timeline went: Sunday evening - 2/3rds of the vision in the left eye was suddenly covered by a grey curtain Monday morning - went to eye doctor who sent me to the Uni Klinik in Regensburg Tuesday afternoon - operation (scleral buckle) Thursday afternoon - went home   I still can't see sod all in the operated eye, although I've got quite a lot of blood swimming around inside the Glaskörper which means seeing is impossible anyway.   It's doing my head in not being able to drive, the longest time since passing my test 30 years ago.   How long after your operation could you see more or less normally again?
