    This week was D.day for Cataract removal left eye  No problems as yet apart from one lovely black eye . I dont recall ever having so many drops in my eye before,also the paper work at the hospital was incredible with me signing  numerous paper work then having to check that was my signature . Many folk at the Eye & Ear hospital, I had quite a long wait  but the actual procedure was quick.  I can already notice a difference in outdoors viewing but will still need glasses for reading, I have arranged for my other eye to be done  end of May. The best bit was the cup of tea, and ham sandwich at about 4pm after nothing to eat since 8am.

    The one thing now annoying me- is where have I left my glasses?? I still need glasses just for reading,  will see what happens when the right eye is  operated on the 30th May. The vision in so clear in my left eye I  can see all sorts of things I didnt  notice before, like spots and colors

    Next week is  cataract operation time for the right eye, thank goodness.   It is off putting with one clear eye and the other all fuzzy , then I can get some new glasses just for reading, and maybe I will be able to find my glasses when needed, this off with glasses, on with glasses for reading, is quite irritating.

    I dont need  glasses now when just walking around

    Good wishes to both of you.   My cataracts were done about 15 years ago, and it’s really nice to see colours so bright and be able to read street signs from a distance. 🙂

    In my case, I still wear glasses as the surgeon explained at the time, because I’ve worn glasses all my life, the eyes would not adapt to being completely without. However, I see very well around the house, without them, but need them for driving, for example.

    It would probably be different now, as technology advances fairly quickly.

    Yes the surgeon corrected my extreme shortsightedness with the new lenses he put in. When my second eye was done I was absolutely amazed at the 3D vision which I had obviously not had for years.
    Hope all goes well Betty.
