Before surgery I was able to see out of both of my eyes, but I only use one eye because my eyes have been crossed since birth and nothing could be done for it when i was younger. About 10 years ago I questioned an Opthamologist about new techniques in Surgery and he said nothing was l00% guaranteed and I should do nothing.
I have been only using one eye for most of my life. I had the cataract surgery just to see if I could see better in that eye and if yes, i would do the good eye.
My glasses rx are 00=+3.00-0.75 X080 / ADD +2.75 OU
That was before surgery and the day after the surgery the left eye was the same and the right eye all I could read was the Large E . He told me to wait a while and I then saw him a few months later and he took tests on the retina and said it was AM D and the only way to treat it was with either injections in the eye or laser surgery.
I told him I wanted neither option and i left the office and will see him again in 4 months.
I do not mind that I cannot see in that eye because I actually never used it anyway.
My only REAL CONCERN is for my good eye which also has cataracts.
I will never have the surgery for the good eye because I am scared it will happen again and then I will really be blind.
I am taking baush and Lomb Preservision with Luten 2X a day.
