So, wait to see the Ophthalmologist was 6 months, early December. He said that the current surgical wait time (100% covered, keep in mind) was about 7 months.

Okay, cool, I will just not drive at night anymore...

Today, I get a call "we had a cancellation for next Monday. Would you like the spot?"

HELL YES!!!

This time next week, I'll be able read with my nose more than one inch from the screen WOOOT

Enjoy!


The easier reading I mean, not the surgery... :oops:


Let me try again.


Successful surgery, quick recovery, enjoy many many many years of easier reading.



That's better. 8)

If you don't have astigmatism (I do) see if you can get the kind of lens where your eye muscles can regulate its shape a little, like they can with the lens that's about to be removed.

Everyone I've talked to about this says "There's so much more LIGHT". I could use more light. And less glare at night. But I'm putting this off as long as I can.

Singin' "I wear my sunglasses at night!". I'm gonna try to check out those antiglare glasses. The regular polarized ones don't help that much & I *don't* need the amber coating at night.

Good luck; I know what it's like to have your eyesight messed up for a while, so I'm glad you'll be getting yours taken care of soon.

You'll be surprised how short the surgery is. I had mine done when I was 39, and they didn't have the flexible lenses then.

My 83 y-o mother just had hers done in November. Easy-peasy. The eye drops are a bit of a pain, but otherwise, no problems. Hoping the same for you!

Hopefully a quick surgery and recovery time!
