    Cataract Surgery

    Just thought I'd put this out there for any of our quilting friends who have been advised to have the surgery.
    I had one of my eyes done a week ago and I'm still astounded at how my vision has improved. It was absolutely painless and over in 15 minutes. I don't know why I waited ( of course I do I was terrified; it was my eyes, and my art is my soul's expression), but I'm scheduled for the other in March and can hardly wait. Be brave!

    ditto, here. I had my dominant eye done a couple of years ago in conjunction with my kerataconus surgery. I'm waiting for my next insurance to kick in to have the other eye done. I only wear glasses for close up work. The surgeon said that he will make my other eye 'monovision' like in contacts. that would be awesome

    I had both eyes done a couple years ago and what a difference. The only time I have to wear glasses now is when I use the computer or read. Reading glasses are sure a lot cheaper than prescription ones. Get them at the dollar store. Anyone putting it off, don't. Well worth it.

    I had both eyes done a couple of years ago, I was scared at first, but no pain, little maintenance afterwards and could see so much better. Only use cheaters to read small print.

    I am very glad and happy for all of you that have had successful cataract surgery. I had cataract surgery done on both eyes last year, and if I could go back and undo it I would. I have a dark line in my vision on the outer edge of each eye. Was told "it's scar tissue and will fade over time" It hasn't. I still have "light halos" on a lot of things, especially headlights on cars, which cuts down on much driving at night. Still have to wear glasses,( bifocals ) and still need glasses for using the computer. At my 6 month exam after surgery, was told by the surgeon, "you must allways remember, any surgery of any kind, nothing can be guaranteed".
