Well, I had to wait 5 weeks, but I finally had the cataract in my right eye removed.
The surgery didn’t seem to go as smoothly as the the surgery on my left eye though. I had a little more discomfort after surgery, and my vision doesn’t seem as good in the right eye, although I checked 20/25 in both eyes when I went to see the doctor for my follow up appointment the next day, and things are improving.
Not sure what I was expecting, as it’s still a 10 fold improvement over what I had been experiencing, so I’m not complaining to profusely.
It’s hard to believe I went as long as I did without surgery. It’s like I had been seeing everything in standard definition (SD) all this time, and now I’m viewing everything in HD (high definition).
There’s still about 2 more weeks of recovery, having to wear an eye shield at bed time, and putting 3 different eye drops, 4X a day, in my eye, but I think I can handle it. After all I’ve waited this long. What’s another 2 [or 3] weeks.
