    Default Cataract surgery today

    OK folks, I'm going in this morning to have my right peeper fixed up so I can see how to get the tippet through the hook eye. I'll SEE you later. (I hope) Jim

    Good luck.
    I need to tell you a little story. My wife had to have cataract surgery in both eyes, not the same time. Any way she comes home from the DR's office and tells me "I have worn glasses since I was 10 yrs old, now I won't have to wear them anymore. I said great. She comes home from the surgery madder than a hen. The Dr told her she would need to get some reading glasses so she could read. I about busted a gut because she had been so adamant about not having to wear ANY glasses.

    You see my wife is a very focused person, in other words, anal, and it's hard for me to get something on her. It's been six months since she had her surgery and she can not keep up with her glasses.

    Hey Jim, It's a piece of cake. I've had both of mine done ! Vision is 20/20 both eyes. Only problem is that is distant vision and you still need correction for near. Best of luck and the Lord's blessing on your surgery.

    Thanks for the well wishes and prayers. It wasn't a bad thing as far as surgery goes. It's sort of uncomfortable with this big patch on my eye, and 12 hours later I'm still not used to no depth perception. I go to the dr's office tomorrow to have the patch taken off and have it inspected. It's 4 weeks til opening day and I hope to be 100% for that. Jim
