You mean you had cataracts removed? Old hat for some of us. I hope your long distance vision is better. Hope any macular disfunction is not there.

Well, courtesy of the American health visitors both wifey and I had one eye.... the worst one done. For me brilliant. For wifey not so, but I have been told it is your own personal luck of the draw whether they can fit you with spot on uncorrected vision, or whether you still need glasses.

During the procedure the surgeon said mine was a bear, because of my vision strength meant they did not have much room to work within the eye.... what ever, it healed quickly, very little discomfort, vision restored very quickly. Despite anesthetic issues caused primarily by delays in surgery after the injection it would have been brilliant.

Wifey had no problems with the surgery, but hasn't been a happy bunny since, and needs glasses.

Regardless, one visitation to see if one was going on the list, and then an inspection prior to surgery to establish the lenses to be fitted, and then surgery. Kinda wonder why you would need 5 visits.

Hoping to get the second one done later this year.

Mine was good to go by 3 days, wifey a bit longer, but issues are ALWAYS more intense for her.
