Vitrecotomy Recovery (Me)
There is equipment manufactured especially for this retinal surgery, for people who must keep their heads down for a week. It looks to be a lifesaver because a week is a very long time without books, computer, etc.
They offer a chair (reminescent of those public massage chairs) that leans forward with a face pillow.
In addition, there is a tray that can be affixed beneath your face, for eating.
They also supply a mirrored contraption that can be placed on that tray so that the TV reflects in it, and you can see TV in the mirror. Clever and another lifesaver.
And finally there's the face contraption to put in my bed so I can sleep face down and still breathe.
