Can NSA track those serial numbers?
Keep us informed.

National Security Agency (NSA) or otherwise known as "No Such Agency" by some people.

Had mine done about 7 years ago. Great Doctor in Nashville tuned them to where one is slightly better close up and the other is better for distance. Don't need to wear any correction for reading or distance. Neat story about how they discovered they could do implants too?

Nashville has some great medical care facilities. Lived in that area for seven years. Here in ID the doctors practice on Mr. Potato head.

I thought about that procedure,but at my age I don't mind using reading glasses.

Not sure of what your implants question is.

B, glad to hear your surgery went well.

When I saw my eye doctor last spring, he told me I had cataracts starting on both eyes, and that it was only a matter of time. Have an appointment later this month...guessing he'll tell me it is time.

Your positive report will make the decision somewhat easier. Thanks!

Mike

Glad it might help you. Think it over and discuss all your options with your Doctor - I had three options and choose the one best for me.

All the best to you.

Hi B47 glad every thing went well for you. I am scheduled for tomorrow a noon to have my right eye cataract and a partial thickness cornea transplant. Had the left eye done last November 6th. I now have 20/25 vision in my left eye. Before the transplant left eye was 20/300 right eye now is 20/250. genetics sucks I inherited Fuchs cornea dystrophy from one of my parents. I had good vision up to about December 2013. I was very fortunate to find a good eye doctor to diagnose and to fix this. After the surgery I will have to lay flat on my back for 5 days looking at the ceiling for the gas bubble they put in my eye to push the transplant in place.

will be back in about a week Tim
