    Cheaters! anybody watch Sanford and Son? old show with Mr. Sanford (red fox) digging in a drawer of glasses. I am like him. I do need them for reading but otherwise don't wear glasses.

    So glad it went well. DH had one eye done last year and he was thrilled with the results. All your fabric is going to look even more beautiful now.

    I'm thrilled for you. I remember when I had mine done how bright colors were. It was like a whole new world. I also have had a lazy left eye all my life. Some days I just can't focus on things and that's when my lazy eye is acting up. Good luck with your next eye.

    And just wait a few more days and you'll really see the difference in colors (close your left eye and look at a piece of white fabric, then switch eyes and look at it) you'll be amazed at what you've been missing!

    I'm glad all went well and you see even better than before! What a feat! I had both done at same time but later had troubles getting cloudy again. After many calls i finally went to my husband's Doctor. 1/3 of patients have later problems. mine were immediate. but had laser surgery on both eyes, not same day, only took five minutes each. Can see better now, thread needles, etc. Very happy.

    LOL it's probably the only time at age 71 that something will work better then it did at 20 :-) Now that is some feat!

    Glad everything went well for you. I had both of mine done six months ago. The surgery is painless. I was quite surprised that everything looked so much sharper and colors were so vibrant. My only regret was that I hadn't done it sooner.

    I'm happy to hear that your surgery was better than expected. Take time to heal before your second eye.

    Re: Cataract Surgery went well

    Bubba I have to admit that I felt safer having them done separately. I didn't want to not be able to see out of at least one eye during the healing process. Also I kept thinking well if something went wrong then where's my fall back eye LOL. I have to admit that at least your way I wouldn't have to put up with eye drops for a total of 2 months...just 1 :-) The good news though is I don't have to pay for any of this so the finances wasn't a consideration. I can see where charging for two surgeries would be a motive for some doctors though....the greedy lil buggers!.
