Good luck; that does not sound like much fun; laying on your back for five days.

X-2 Had mine done about 7 years ago, no problems to this date. Very easy procedure.

Tim - X2. Sounds like a much more complex procedure you are about to under go.

Best of luck and keep us informed.

I've just scheduled surgery for my right eye. Can't wait to see better and be able to read these posts without the aid of a magnifying glass.

Hi B47 I have good news. The surgery went very well. The vision in my right eye is slowly becoming clearer every day as the gas bubble they put in the eye to hold the transplant in place is dissipating. The five days on my back was just as much fun this time as the last. (Not) I'm glad that part is behind me. Still have to be very care full with the eye not to rub or bump it. It will let me know if it gets to much pressure near it.

My be I will see you at frog in august Tim

That is great news. You must of had a different procedure than I had as I had improved vision right away. I also didn't have a gas bubble.

But great news and I'm glad to hear it. Are you wearing an eye shield at night?

Eye doc told me I have cataracts and glaucoma. But when I have the cataract surgery it will take care of my glaucoma at the same time. Hope that is still years down the road.

I'm done with the cataract surgery, but might have to go back for a new lens in the left eye. Seems there is a flaw in the lens. They will try a laser first, but if that fails; back to the little operating room.

If anyone here is a photographer, and has added a diopter to the viewfinder, chances are, it can be removed. I had diopters installed on all three Nikon cameras and when first using one after surgery, I forgot about them, and thought the AF system had gone haywire. Just a hint....
