Because I can see better, I need new glasses.
Cataract surgery removes the clouded lens. Cataracts due tend to form as we age.
The lens becomes cloudy. Driving at night becomes almost impossible. Nothing is
crystal clear. Depending on how bad the cataract is, your sight may be very blurry.
I chose to have the cataract surgery now. I could have waited until it become much
worse. There would be no point in waiting, however. Once you have cataract surgery,
you never need to have it again.
They make tiny incisions to remove the cataract and insert new lens to the eye.
Well like any surgery, you may risk complications. Some people never have any
problems after cataract surgery and some people do.
They had me look at the eye chart, of my right eye that was done a couple of weeks
ago. I could see 4 almost 5 lines down. Before the surgery with my right eye, I
could only see the top line.....a giant E.
I'm glad I had it done. My sister had cataract surgery ten years ago and she does
not have any issues. My husband, he was older than me, he had one eye done that
was really bad and a few years later, had the other eye done. He never had any
complications at all.
So, like all decisions, one may weigh the pros and cons.
