I was referred by Boots the optician and went for 1st consultation today and I am having one of my catarracts removed in the next 12 weeks. Cannot believe it, as another optician somewhere else diagnosed about 3 years ago and didnt do anything about it and over the last year, my eyes have got worse, that bad that I don't enjoy reading books etc. Everything a blur. Told it was to do with the medication which taken for years. Hopefully will be able to read the newspaper properly soon.
