Cataract surgery a year ago
I thought that, generally, cataract surgery was "no biggy." I knew my Mom had problems with glasses after hers, but I didn't expect any complications. I had the surgery shortly after my son died of suicide, so I was in grieving mode. I had the surgery and noticed I couldn't see very well. I got new glasses 3 times; progressive lenses, no small expense. I thought maybe crying a lot was the problem. Recently, it has been over a year, I went to the eye doctor only to find out that my left lens has a blurry spot and I may need laser. Also, I have arthritis and was told that it affected my eyes, drying the eyes to a point I need more than over the counter drops. Restasis, I find out, is approximately $600. for three months and may not help. Many insurances will not cover it. Mine asked for a referral from my doctor so I don't know if it will be covered or not.
