My last post was about my experience on one particular day. I don't want it to color your impression of cataract surgery as I apparently did.
My first surgery was so easy.
Better than any trip to the dentist...even easier than a cleaning with no cavities.
My appointment was at 8:00a and thanks to pre-registration, there were no hazzles.
I was in back in prep by 8:15a and into surgery by 9:00a.
It took about 15 minutes for the actual surgery. Thanks, in part, to the machine that broke yesterday.
Since I had no drugs, including the offered drug to decrease anxiety, I was on my way home in another 15 minutes.
In approximately two hours, I went from 20/150 with signicant astigmatism to 20/25 after a relatively short healing time. My "bionic" eye still requires reading glasses when I read or work on the computer for best results.
Colors pop and I can read signs at great distances. I see better than I did in my teens.
It's a miracle surgery and I wish I had done it sooner.
I think Liz had a great point. It would be great to ask about a "Plan B." It never occurred to me. I think that's especially important if your surgery is on Saturday like mine was.
I apologize if I made anyone anxious about cataract surgery. My post was more for me to "write out" the day.
Hugs all around.
