    Yeah, right on schedule. First couple of days pretty swollen and light sensitive,(no eye patch,) but today vision is getting better and no irritation.

    Pretty good progress, mostly clear vision in left eye. Now to save up for the right one!

    Indeed and I no longer have to drive by abstraction. (No kidding, I passed the California driver's license eye exam, before surgery, when I had to get a mandatory renewal.)
    No, the surgical nurse puts a green arrow (with a grease pencil, I think) under the one they plan to fix. We did the left first, because it was the worst one, but the right is rapidly dimming, so maybe in February we'll go for that one. I have to layout $1500 usd out of pocket as my insurance considers laser surgery experimental.

    Actually that's not too bad. I'm still waiting for insurance companies to approve LASIK surgery so I don't have to pay $3k per eye. Been waiting about 20 years now but there's no relief IN SIGHT. Harhar

    I was kiddin' about the right/wrong one.
    Really, experimental ? I have a friend ophthalmologist who does I think 20+ cataracts each day. He's being paid by the act, the same amount he was when everything was done with bistouris.
