    Karen, really, don't be afraid. You don't feel anything. You're numb, what little vision you have during it you really can't see what's happening. Just a few lights and black dot blobs. They just tell you to stare at the light so you do cause you could care less. Also your sedated enough that you really don't care what's going on. Easier than going to a dentist for a root canal where you hear the darn drill the whole time :-) I'd rather do this than go to a dentist, dr exam or lawyer any day! And the benefits are so amazing!

    When MM had his done last year, we were surprised they did them both the same day! When I questioned the doctor about it, he said they have done it that way for years, however some doctors prefer to do them on separate days so they can charge for another surgery!! I could not believe it!

    I'm glad it went well for you.

    Carlie,
    Glad you had such a good experience and results are better than anticipated . My visual revelation was that grass was individual blades, not a flat expanse of green.
    Blessings Kathy

    Cataract Surgery went well

    It all went well and I wasn't nervous.

    I have to say I'm amazed!! Even though my vision is still a little blurry because of the eye drops I'm so excited. The dr didn't think he would be able to get that eye better than 20/100 with the surgery it's already at 20/40!!! The other thing I didn't expect was that I now have depth perception which I didn't have before. I've always had a lazy left eye. When I first took the patch off I was like "what's this??? Is this 3D???" Then discovered it's the first time I could see depth. I've been living in a flat world LOL. I can also feel both eyes working at the same time!!! I love it. It's going to take me a little time to adjust because it's like looking through the side car window where "items may be closer (or further away) then they seem".

    But all in all I've a very happy camper :-) The next surgery (right eye) is Oct 10.
Working...
