My husband had cataract surgery two weeks ago. We weren't told much about what to expect afterwards...as far as sight goes. It turns out that he sees fairly well with that eye, but he will still need to wear glasses in order to see really right.
His doctor told him he wouldn't give him a new prescription for that eye for 6 weeks. So my husband took the lens out of one of his glasses and is using his "other eye" to do most of his seeing.
He has cataract surgery on the second eye in two weeks. He is expecting to be told the same thing...no new prescription for 6 weeks.
My question is what can be done to help him see better as he waits for both eyes to "heal completely." I think reading glasses, like from Wal-Mart might help when both eyes are done, but I'd sure appreciate someone who has been through this to give me some suggestions. His current back up plan is for me to drive him to and from work for six weeks, and I am looking for something a little less time consuming on my part! :)
