Glad to hear it went well. My doctor says I will have to have it done in a year or so. Between not seeing so well out of my right eye, and being deaf in my right ear.....the golden years can kiss my....well you know.

Congrats - I started in my teens. I'll give you another 25-30 years before cataracts show up.

Eyeglasses - not so long with your drinking problems.

Reading glasses at approx. 46, distance vision (right eye) approx 10 years later, distance (left eye) about five years ago. B47 is right in the time frame for cataracts. But by that time it might be two minutes in an optometrists chair vs. 15-20 in an ophthalmologists chair.

B47, I totally agree with your comments. I had both done ~10 years ago and it was amazing. Congratulations and enjoy your new found vision.

Thanks - sorry to hear about the guy at work. Permanent damage is something to fear and is one reason I waited. After all, they are inserting a foreign object in your eyes

BTW - the inserts each have their own serial number and they are given to you.

Heard through the grapevine about a fellow I used to know in Moab who died from cataract surgery. Not sure of the details, will find out more next week when I head back to Moab for a visit. Have to believe it was for some other reason.

Can NSA track those serial numbers?
