Before my cataract surgery, I had difficulty driving at night. I wore glasses for reading, but in a bright light I could easily do without them. My ophthalmologist recommended I have cataract surgery. On his advice I had the surgery on both eyes, three weeks apart. After surgery I found I could see colors more clearly, and it felt great... but then I realized, I don’t see distances any better, still can’t read car licenses plates or road signs, even with bifocal glasses I was prescribed. The worst part is, now I cant read ANYTHING without reading glasses... If I had known before what I know now, I may have gone a different route. I had a great Doctor, and all the Doctors say my eyes are good now. And I am tied to glasses for ever.
