He is slightly in the dog house, pun intended. He is trying to convince me to have cataract surgery. They would have to knock me out completely for anyone to get near my eyes. I am highly sensitive to anything coming toward my eyes.

UFFDA,,,, I had both eyes done 6 or 6 years ago.. and my "Doctor" did not bother to tell me a few things until i was on the table... need to know.. surgery will pretty much end depth perception, and dry eyes will become a notable irritation every day..

All that and I must add.. I am very glad to have gotten it done... walking about and seeing the leaves on the trees was wonderful.. truly a treat.. the other problems did not amount to anything untill I was very accustomed to the new and shiny vision...

Do not worry,, the op took only a short time in recovery and I do not recall any problems at all other then I whined about..

Pick a good doctor and get prepared to enjoy your new and excellent vison.. no worry, it is very simply these days..

It is creepy to have someone working on your eyes.. but these are very well trained and equipped.. But find a Doctor with a better patient relationship then mine had..

You will be fine!!

I am unable to find a local ophthalmological surgeon who will fully sedate me.

My glasses continue to work quite well. I, readily, admit when I am very tired my eyes go wonkie.

Basically, I am going to procrastinate for a while.

One oddity has occurred my glasses are ineffective at distances. I went for a number of years needing them. As it stands now, I only need them to see numbers while driving. They stay on top my head for quick use.

AuntiE, I just had it. Over about four months. One eye then the other. It is amazing how prettier the ladies look since it was done. No fuzzy images of their pretty faces. Now, real clarity. I couldn't read street signs across the street, Now, real clear. Things looked yellowish all the time. Now they are their natural white. I used to see rainbows around the moon and all street lights. Now the image isn't defused and no rainbows. I do a lot of running in the night. And occasionally in the woods. A lot less likely to trip now.

I know many others and everyone highly recommended it and I do too.

Pain, minimal. The eye drops for several weeks are a pain, but they end. I had surgery. Apparently the lazer is really more pain free and quicker recovery.

You will be glad you did. Or one of the rare, under 1%.

Uncle E.

Auntie,
I can promise you; I am one who they used to almost have to tie me down just to put eye drops in my eyes. I had the operation done and it was a piece of cake, no pin whatsoever. It only takes a short time and you don't feel anything. I promise. I put it off because of fear but finlly bit the bullet. After I had the forst one done I couldn't wait until they did the other eye.

UncleE is of the opinion I know my vision capabilities and issues and should do what is comfortable for me. He did gently suggest his mother and aunt’s vision was improved with the laser surgery.
