Anyone here had a cataract operation?. I have been told no its probably not your tinted glasses that I complain about, its probably your cataracts , go make an appointment with an eye man and see what he says, before you decide to do away with the tinted glasses.
I say I can see better over the top of my glasses than with them on, how can that be my cataracts? its the tinting I say, But the optometrists insist the tinted glasses are not to blame and say its best not to do away with the tints [ Got these new glasses in February]
Mmmm I am not sure what to do , anyone here been through this dilemma?
betty I know folk who have had their cataracts ‘done’ and it has been highly successful.
May I suggest that you speak with your GP and get his opinion – he can refer you to a specialist for further eye examining.
The folk I know had no issues whatsoever with their ‘recovery’ and were pleased to be able to toss their reading glasses aside!!
Betty I have had two Cataract extractions, it is no big deal now. Your GP will refer you to an Eye Specialist. Some surgeons like you to be admitted overnight after surgery, so they are able examine your eye next morning, others just ask you to have an early a m appointment. Usually 3 weeks after the Op.,you’ll be able get new Glasses.
Hullo Rachael, would you believe ,No I haven’t as yet managed to see my Dr re a referral we seem to be going through a stage of being incredibly busy and he does not attend on Fridays when I seem to be free.I also haven’t manged to get a flu injection either as yet , I was supposed to see him when my nasty cough had gone , but somehow the weeks just fly by and I don’t manage to fit in seeing him as yet
Bettyh your fluvax is important so best to get that done first then aort out your eyes.
I know what you mean about time flying by so fast.
I often say that if I wrote down on paper what I have done during the day it would probably be three or four lines but it has taken me the whole day to get things done.
