My Cataracts page...


I was wondering why my glasses never seem to be clean enough. Then I finally noticed one eye see to be getting cloudier. Went to eye doc- last check up was ok-- but now, yup, a cataract is forming.  He said it's a 'young person's cataract' (how nice) meaning that it is not the slow forming kind of old age, it is an exponentially fast forming kind that usually results from a head trauma in the past or from too much drugs like prednizone (?). Said I would be 'in trouble' by Christmas, and the other eye soon to follow. So  I got left cataract replaced with the $$$ multi-focus lens, and coupel weeks later got the right replaced with a $$ regular single (far) focus lens.  So now I can somewhat read (if enough light) close up, and see quite well at a distance, but still prefer my new glasses for reading books or driving at night.  But wow! Clear as crystal!
