Cataract Surgery Scheduled

Well I just heard from the local hospital and the first of my two upcoming eye surgeries is scheduled for next Tuesday (June 18), the day before my 65th birthday . . . so hopefully I'll have improved vision for my birthday.

Typically the second eye will likely have its cataract surgery within a month of the first one.  And I must say that I am really looking forward to being able to see better . . . my eyesight has really deteriorated lately . . . so these upcoming surgeries are welcome.

Restored sight, or even partially improved sounds like a good birthday present.

Jeff,

Just like those above, my comment is that my parents both had this or similar operations to great success. Life-changing according to my mother!

you will be switching to 6mm hordes afterward... Good luck!

Good luck with everything. Hope all goes well.

My father had cataracts almost from birth, and he went through a similar procedure to your planned one, spaced some time apart. He found it made a huge difference to the quality of his vision. I wish you well.

I'll be interested in seeing how the surgery goes, Jeff. I have cataracts in one eye - the other so far being OK (I can read what I'm typing here without glasses even, but my left eye just sees a bunch of grey smudges).

Makes painting a bit strange - not always sure what I'm looking at, the required 3D vision is conditional on size of detail, and any kind of glare has a blinding effect. I might be forced to get something done at my own expense...

Cheers,
Ion
