I started having eye problems at age 38 when I developed cataracts

Customer Question

I started having eye problems at age 38 when I developed cataracts in both eyes and before this the doctor did say I had a curvature in my retinas. The surgery went smooth until I had complications later with detached retinas in first my right and then left eye. The left eye did encounter damage to the retina from the surgery. I am now 57 years of age and have been diagnosed for a couple years with glaucoma and take drops three times a day. My intermediate distance of seeing has been compromised such as using a computer at my current distance from the monitor. I have to use a reading lens in glasses for my left eye and distance lens for my right eye. I have tired bifocals and transition lenses with little success. I see my ophthalmologist four times a year or every quarter, because of his concerns. I have no special provisions at work and have been told to do more each year as so many people in the work force. I think most people feel I do not have any problems with my health. Please explain if I have any rights under ADA. Thank you. Jeff
