Well the cataract is easy to deal with I had two operated on back in 2012 and now have almost perfect eyesight - better than I had back when I was 14 and started wearing glasses.  Opticians have wonderful instruments available at their offices now - some only available in hospitals just a few years ago and they are really good at finding things and referring you for further treatment. 

Hope everything goes well for you at your check up and that your appointment on Tuesday helps you get further treatment.

I too have the beginnings of cataracts due to long term oral steroids. My left eye is worse than my right.. slightly fuzzy, which is what prompted me to go to my opticians.  Have new glasses again but still have fuzziness.  I am still fine to drive at the moment though.
