Had the last cataract removed yesterday. Glad that's over. It's not really a bad process, it's just the long wait when you go until they get to you. Was suppose to be there by 9 and didn't get in to have it done until after 12. Something caused the doctor to have a 40/45 minute delay before she could even get there. Then of course waiting out the ones schedules ahead of me. Now a couple of weeks of eyedrops and all should be well.
One thing I learned is there are 3 ways to remove cataracts. The one we all think of, just removal of the cataract. The other two are total replacement of the lens of the eye. That is what I had. The up and downside of this is one lens Medicare will pay for the other they won't. The one they pay for you still have to have glasses to correct a astigmatism (which I have), and the other will do all that with no glasses needed. The expenses, of course, being too great to come up with on my own. They won't let you even pay the difference. So I will still have to have glasses for certain things. No big deal really as I'm pretty used to them. Have wore glasses since the 6th grade so they seem like a normal part of my face.
I feel so bad for all those harmed by that awful tornado. It just boggles the mind what those things can do. We had an e5 in WI. some years ago, though not where we live. Thank the Lord. We did have one go through here that took off the gym roof at the high school, and the roof at the fire depts. That was the worst of that damage. No injuries.
Well off to the doctor for that checkup after the surgery. You all take care.
