In late August of last year I had cataract surgery on my right eye. I was blown away by the results of my first surgery .

For the first time in years I could see again. Not to mention I could drive at night (without glasses)

Well, last Thursday I had the left eye done. Talk about a difference. My right eye was sore for a week, and I had to wear dark glasses for three weeks (even indoors and at night).

Left eye? No pain, and no dark glasses the next day. I've donated all my prescription glasses to the Lions Club, and got a cheap pair of readers from the local drug store.

A slightly different procedure for my left eye. This time I have to put in eye drops for a month. With my right one I was part of a study where they injected the medicine into my eye, and no post-op drops were needed.

It's great to be able to see again, and man, my wife is a dish !!

The only downside is no shooting or cigars for four weeks.

Glad to hear that your surgeries where so sucessfull. I had both eyes done last summer and couldn't be happier with the results. 20/20 the day after surgery in each eye, surgery was two weeks apart.

Congratulations that your surgery was a success. When I had both of my cataracts removed it was over 24 years ago and I am sure the procedures are much better now. I also noticed a great improvement in my vision afterwards.

Also, many thanks for donating your old glasses to your local Lions Club. I have been a member of my Lions Club for over 47 years and I know the good that can be made from the used glasses.
