• I just had a stent put in last week and I immediately noticed vision improvement while recovering looking up at ceiling tiles. I told my wife. It has gotten better and Im not sure what caused it.

• I have just recently had 2 stents installed, April 1st. I noticed the day after going home, that I was working on my little netbook computer, which has a screen about the size of your average pocket watch... that I wasn't wearing my Reader Glasses. I thought it was a fluke. But sure enough, I tested things, and I was able to continue working on my computer, reading labels on things at normal range... I was also wearing my spare contacts which were somewhat dirty.Over a month later and I still have improved vision. Also, my contacts don't seem to be needing change so often, and my eyes are less irritated and/or dry it seems. I show off to my girl now and then... but she notices that when she drops something, like a pill, on the floor that I'm able to spot it... also she asks me to read labels for her that she can't make out. Does anybody else out there have improved vision after having stents installed. It also seems that I have improved energy. I'm wondering if it's the Plavix I'm on or if it's just the Stents.
