Hi Dorothy so nice to hear your vision has improved so much over the last couple of days, just think of all the beautiful colours in the flowers you will be able to see in the Spring and Summer, are you going to be having the other eye done quite soon?

Thank you for this post, forward thinking I'm dreading have cataracts but this post has made me worry less about it.

I hate the thought of anyone near my eyes.

nothing to worry about at all Riverbank so say I who had both done under general mindst had to have laser therapy 2 years down the line now that gave me the collywobbles especially when the receptionist nurse failed to put anesthetic drops in and I felt the first shot of YAG Laser ouch I was not best pleased when the consultant came sheepishly back into the room and humbly apologized and blamed it on the nurse. I should have gone running screaming from the room and took the hospital to the cleaners. The last procedure I had done was lid surgery now I was not looking forward to that one as it was done under local but no problem he gave me a few jabs in the area he was cutting out then told me he was going to cut now and asked to say stop if it hurt, it did and I did so he gave me some more jungle juice and they very nearly had to wake me up when done.

I am so pleased the op. went well. I too am wondering how far off my colour sense is, it will be fascinating to find out once I get my cataracts done. Xris

Hi newlands, thanks for your post it is so positive. My husband has a phobia about eyes but has a cataract, he is due for the op in the next 4 weeks. He is being really brave at the moment and I am sure reading your experience will make him feel better about the whole thing. Take care Maximonkey
