That must make such a difference for you. I'm glad it all worked out.

Really pleased to hear all went well for you goldcrest.

love cx

I found the same as you, goldcrest. Cataracts were a breeze. I still have to wear glasses, but everything is so much more clearly defined.

A great Christmas present, gold crest!

Hello Goldcrest such good news for you and sounds that everything went really smoothly brilliant.Enjoy your new found sight back again,really happy for you. :) Janexx

so pleased for you

Well done Goldcrest. I had mine done earlier in the year and it made a huge difference to me. I saw my wife clearly for the first time in years so she has got to go. lol

that's great, I must admit its not something I want done, once I found out you had to be awake for that operation, I thought, no won't be able to do that.

glad your vision is much improved.
