Sorry to hear about your bad cataract experience and hope everything works out.

This reminds me of something this reminded me of - I was given a little plastic card after each eye had the procedure performed. I asked what the card was for and was told that each lens has a serial number plus some other information on the card. Each surgeon is required to send that information to the lens manufacturer in case a recall is necessary.

Yes, I got the cards and found out they are good for one other thing. Traffic stops!

I called the state of ID and asked how I go about removing the restriction that required me to wear corrective lenses while driving. The woman asked if I had received the cards, I said yes, and she informed me that if stopped and the LE asked about corrective lenses, just show them the card.

While walking the dog the next day, I asked my local LE neighbor and he said it was accepted by him and should be for other LEs. Hopefully, it will be accepted by the surrounding states too.

Interesting - I never thought about that. I might check with Texas on that to see if we have a similar provision.

My wife,who is a RN, and has assisted in some heart pacemaker operations,says that pacemakers also are serialized which makes sense.

I believe replacement hips, knees, etc., are also serialized in case of recalls. Had a friend who had a hip recalled. Heck of a lot worse than another eye surgery.

Our optometrist said I am 6-8 years out from needing cataract surgery, DH is about 10 years out. My left eye currently cannot be corrected to 20/20 with glasses, so the surgery could be a real improvement.

I ask my eye doctor ever visit if he sees any sign of cataracts and it's always the same no. Darn I want the surgery so bad. I am far sighted so no one will do the laser surgery and I'm at the end of what contacts will do the glasses I have are so thick and heavy I can't stand them. Oh to be able to see anything without corrective lenses.

I too am far sighted. My cataract surgery enabled me to ditch my pre- surgery glasses,but I still need reading glasses,although they much thinner and lighter than what I had pre- surgery.
