Dusty eyes

Post by Dusty2 » Sat Mar 29, 2014 9:35 pm

Seems my critter finding eyes need some maintenance Tuesday morning at an indecent hour I have to go in and get cataracts removed from my right eye so maybe I'll be back up to my normal critter finding again soon. Down part is 3 weeks with no diving. :angryblue: :crybaby:

I hope your surgery and recovery go well! Both of my parents have had cataract surgery and were both happy with the results. Good luck!

Good luck with the procedure Rich. Hope to be diving again with you at PT when you are ready.

Rich - sorry to hear, but pleased that there is readily available treatment. My Mom had similar surgery and even artificial lenses put in her eyes. It was so successful she forgot she had had the surgery! :)

Miss diving with you!

Thanks the replacement lens is part of the procedure. They take out your old cloudy lens and replace it with a new one made with your RX. I watched a video on it and it looks pretty cool. Pretty much a rite of passage for us old farts from what the doctor says.

Thanks everyone for the good wishes. Should be good as new in a couple of weeks. :popcorn:

You can make your own lens.

Got one of those in my shop but it's a bit larger. Think I'll leave it to the experts. :BDub:

That's a lovely bit of machine work though

There are people who pay good money to have multi-focal lenses inserted just so they don't have to wear glasses. They show it really isn't much of a risk. I know I like mine and not having to wear glasses for the past years.

Here's hoping for an uneventful surgery and a short three weeks!
