I had Cataract Surgery this morning.

Really slick procedure now - about 15 minutes. Way better than going to the dentist...

Last night I had terrible 'halos' around all point light sources so I was a little concerned. Watching a movie was 'interesting' as the halos were dancing all over the place as point light sources on the screen moved.

This morning the halos seem to be gone & I'm able to read a licence plate across the street that I haven't been able to do for a couple of years. I can easily read my computer screen now with the help of weak, cheap readers - yahoo!!

It'll be nice to get the second one done when they can fit me in...

I'm sorry but any phrase ending in "job" sends my mind to the gutter, and EYE don't want to go there.

Hows the eye sight now. ?? were you nearsighted or farsighted. My dad had his done, says he can see better now than when he was 20. Has to use reading glasses still though.

I was a steely-eyed fighter pilot in my younger days with 20/15 eyesight all of my life. Then in my mid 40s I needed readers as most people do - a normal sign of aging.

Despite having worn sunglasses, three years ago I started developing cataracts in both eyes with the right eye outpacing the left. It was really frustrating having better than normal eyesight my whole life & then having everything starting to turn blurry. My night vision was really deteriorating as well. Glasses cannot correct this condition unless they are of coke bottle bottom thickness as seen in people in historical pictures.

Anyway, from what I've seen today, I'm getting back to vision bliss...

I see where you're going, Tom.

Hi TAM,

What types of planes did you fly??

I too had cataract surgery in both eyes about 2 1/2 years ago. The surgeon also made corrective incisions to improve my Astigmatism. I can see much better than when younger, although I still need mild prescription glasses. I was one of the "lucky" 10% (according to my Doctor) to have fast growing cataracts; went from good to really bad in one year. My wife banned me from driving at night near the end.
