As I mentioned on another thread, I went to see the retinologist last Wednesday and this was a new guy and I really liked him. I suggested I get the membrane removed which involves surgery) and at the same time he will remove the cateract and when the new lens is inserted, it will make a big difference in the quality of my vision. I will have to wear readers because I will no longer be so myopic (short sighted) but my vision will not be able to adjust from distance to near so I would need new glasses.
Once that has healed, I can get the cateract on the other eye done, and with the two of them, I should be able to see much better than I can currently. I am trying to see if I can get some home care where someone can come in twice a day for 2 to 5 weeks to put drops in my eye as I cannot do that myself. I will also need someone to come in at least once a day or every two days to make sure all is going well as I will not be able to bend over to pick up anything if it falls on the floor. For the first 3 to 5 days I have to wear an eye patch at night.
There are a couple of other things to be considered but I will know more when I go see my GP next week and discuss it all with him. And if he gives it the green light, I get back to the retinologist and have him schedule the surgery....
More to follow later....
