I had cataract surgery on August 26th and again on Sept 2nd, both eyes are now finished, except for putting drops in them.
I was amazed at the excellence of the medical staff and the opathologist, that took care of me, and performed my surgery. Shocked the procedure took TEN minutes or less, for each eye. Came out of it with 20/20 far sighted. So happy, no glasses needed except for reading! (first time since, 1956 w/o needing glasses, all the time)
I need to wait til Sept. 24th for next eye exam to get sized up for the strength of the reading glasses. That is what is difficult, at this point, but I am coping with it the best, as I could. I am so excited to be able to read together through the right reading glasses.
I was confident from the start that all would go well, but my doctor opted for doing one eye at a time, due to me being a diabetic, which I agreed wholeheartly with him. Amazingly, I am smiling every day and feeling great!
