Round 2 .. next week

Went to the eye doc today, all ready to schedule the surgery.

He did all the fiddling, looked at the photos, and said, "see you in 6 months."

"What?" I asked.  "I thought we were going ahead with this?"

Hmm...apparently he'd forgotten that as an option since the cataracts are still so small.

I told him I don't want to be cavalier about this, but it is definitely interfering with my life.  If I wait and avoid night driving until they're big enough to be a REAL issue, I'll lose other skill sets that go with night driving and I'll be afraid to go back out there.

He paused, and said, "wait here."  A tech came to get me to go take some MORE photos. She said, "but your vision is 20/20."  Well yes, but everything has a halo or haze. Would YOU want to be on the road with me?

After the photos, the doc and I rejoined and he said, "The guy who is the REAL expert on this will be at this clinic on Tuesday. Can you come back?"

Well, yes, of course.

Nine o'clock next Tuesday.  Stay tuned.

...waiting with bated breath!

(What does that mean, anyway? Ha!)

I had a detached retina. The surgery left me with way more nearsightedness and depth perception problems. Ten years later I had cataracts in both eyes. The replacement lenses rebalanced my vision, gave me back my depth perception, and allowed me to see better than I have since grade school. I hope you have the same result.
