If any of you have cataracts all I can say is get them fixed and don't wait, I waited too long tel mine got to where I could not see out of my right eye. I had it fixed today I haven't seen this good in about 2 years. I got one starting in my left eye now  but it will be fixed before it get like my right one was.


Guys you don't have to be in your 50s or 60s for cataracts  mine started in the mid 40s.

Glad you got 'em off. My dad had cataract surgery on both eyes last year and said the same thing you did.

My Mom is getting a flap cut in her eye on Sep 8th to relieve pressure. She's been putting drops in her left eye for awhile now, so hopefully this fixes her up. She going to the best eye doctor in Philadelphia. There's an 80% chance this will fix it so prayerfully this will do the trick.

Dad had one eye done around age 60 and he no longer uses reading glasses.

Pat I will keep her in my prayers and pray hers turns out as good as mine has so far I know it not the same as what I had done but I will pray she has a full recovery of her eye. I had lost almost all sight in my left eye from a cataract all I could see was just a little light out of it now I have 20 20 in it again.

Thank you for the prayers. Mom's surgery went well and the pressure in her eye has gone way down. She has a follow up Tuesday in Philly, but I was with her yesterday and she's doing pretty good. Thanks again buddy! Cool

No problem I go back Tueday for a pressure check on my eye also to make sure it is still healing right and not building any pressure.
