Default Cataract Surgery

My vision is getting a little cloudy and I am having the cataract on my first eye removed with lens replacement on the 14th and the other eye a week later. Hope to be back to normal by the Senior tournament. Have any of you had a good or bad experience with the surgery? I hope to see the balls a little better and if that is the case, maybe play a little better.

A months rest is needed after both surgeries have finished. I ended with 20/20 vision but I still had to adjust to it. Night driving became a little more difficult because of the glare. I let my wife drive me around.

Jim McCary, Howdy;

Love that I had mine (both) done over a year and a half now. Mine was done by
the VA and believe it or not the Dr. did a fantastic job. They had me wait 6 weeks
between so I could adjust the first eye, then the second.
My biggest problem before the surgery was glare. Now, not a problem.

You Sir, should be one very happy camper after the procedures.]

Had both done, one with traditional surgery, the other with laser. Both were painless, fast, quick recovery, and no residual problems.

I had the surgery earlier this year and my experience was similar to yours. I do not miss wearing contacts and the maintenance that went with them.

My ball pocketing is very much improved thanks to the surgery.

Guys---Thank you very much. Feeling a little better now. I get nervous when anything is happening with my eyes. Being retired and all I do is play pool and shoot clays with a shotgun, if I couldn't do that, I might have to stay home and listen to the wife. God I hope this goes well.
