hi, it's been quite a while since I posted here.
I've recently had my cataract surgery planned, finally. I would like to ask if any of you has gone through this? Did it go well? What was the postoperative care like?
will appreciate any advice, I can't say I'm scared, but I do worry a little.
Yes 6 years ago. Best thing that i ever did. Doctor also implanted a permanent lens. Now have 20/20 vision
You may have already had it by now, but postop care was predominately "normal life" for me. I was driving to work the next day and working in front of a computer for 10 hours after each surgery. Took it easy as far as other activities went. I used ziploc bags to keep my meds straight, as with 2 weeks between surgeries, each eye had a different set of drops.
They implanted a trifocal lens for me, my vision went from 20/200 to 20/30 the day after my first eye was operated on, and 20/25 the day after my second eye was operated on. I can actually sit at a normal distance from a computer and keep the font at normal size, see projector screens from across the room, see colors brighter...better than I ever thought it would be. Still not used to not having glasses on for the first time in about 40 years, though - I keep trying to push them up on my nose before I realize they're not there... :)
