Dr. Rick :

Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.

Dr. Rick :

There is no problem in delaying your cataract surgery at all. I wouldn't give it a second thought. Take care of family obligations and then have the surgery.

Dr. Rick :

Delay will not affect your final visual outcome in the least.

Dr. Rick :

Does this make sense to you?

Dr. Rick :

If your surgeon presses you to rush to have your cataract surgery you might want to look around for another surgeon.....unless, of course, he can come up with a very good (and very rare) reason for the rush......

Dr. Rick :

I see that you were online for a brief moment but are once again offline. I'll switch over to the Q&A system. This system works a lot like 'text messaging' but an email is sent to each of us anytime something is posted to this thread. We can continue to work on your question there..... :)
