Don't Wait Too Long for Cataract Surgery
I almost waited too long to see my opthalmologist. The cataract was hard and calcified and thick. The doctors words were that it was the mother of all cataracts. I thought it had to be real bad for an operation under Medicare. I could and should have gone in much sooner. It's been two weeks since surgery and am still having pain, plus I think I am one of the minority who is allergic to the preservatives in the pre-op and post-surgery eye drops.
I can see now out of my left eye whereas before I was totally blind and am under good care from my ophthalmologist. He assured me today that eventually everything would be fine - it's just taking more time than usual because of the severity of the cataract. So, don't wait like I did.
