The operation went fine and there were no complications afterwards. Any discomfort was minimal. However I am very disappointed in the lack of sight I have 10 days after the operation. Although I can devine that by closing the unoperated eye, I have better vision in the new eye - I can't see clearly at any focal point, neither distance, middle range or near to. I read that usually it takes 7 days for the focus to become implemented. I can actually see better with the remaining eye which also has a cataract using my glasses. However, will I be able to see at all after the second cataract operation, I don't know. Also it maybe that in order to accommodate the latter, I shall have to go to the expense of getting new glasses, just for a few weeks - otherwise after the second cataract operation, I won't be able to see at all.
