Had my cataract removed yesterday and I would be a liar if I said I wasn't worried/stressed going in. Not for a fear of the surgery rather the thought of someone messing with my eyes gave me the heebie jeebies..I should have taken a Xanax :>). The entire process lasted less than 10 minutes and I can't believe the positive difference. I was tense looking into the light during the process (not at the end of a tunnel) and then suddenly it was like I was back in the 60's - the light show was great and psychadelic and I didn't have to take anything to see it. That was my way of coping.
It went great, no pain, today it feels like I have something in my eye but Dr says that will be gone in two days and in fact the sensation is already better, and I CAN SEE WITHOUT BLURRY VISION.
PS Getting my knee operated on again later this month and shoulder after that - 50,000 mile tune-up I guess.
