Eyesight terrible after cataract surgery

by Patti Smith
(Little Rock, Arkansas)

I have previous retinal detachment and had cataract surgery in this eye 4 weeks ago. Saw eye surgeon two weeks ago and she claimed vision was 20/40...20/60 before. I can't see anything! I can't read television and forget newspaper or magazine. Surgeon scheduled laser; however insurance will not pay until deductable met for the year and I frankly don't have $350 for treatment. I'm also afraid laser will blind me! I see my retinal specialist this week... dont know what direction to go?
Any help or suggestions appreciated!
