Cataract is another problem that leaves your vision cloudy and diffused (like looking through waxed paper). Many health plans cover this, but they want you to be pretty far along before paying for the surgery. This is one of those surgeries that is fairly quick and easy. You will be dependent on glasses after, and I recommend if you have the surgery (Takes 4-8 minutes), that you not wait until you have had to give up doing things you love because you can't see well enough.
Not exactly. Had cataract surgery in both eyes last year. Could still see, with glasses, but slowly losing side vision, couldn't notice that, but tests showed it. Wore glasses since 13, and near sighted. Got the surgery in my left eye, wore a protective sheil for awhile. After that all healed, about a month, ready for the right eye. Knocked out for the first eye, opted to stay awake for the second. Same drill. And my eyes are now 20/20 in the right eye, and a line less in the less, so now far-sighted. I still wear glasses, but just to bring the left eye up to match the right eye, and actually can see as well with the glasses as with. One major change tho, before I would take my glasses off to read, tried bifocals but had to tilt my head back so far my neck hurt; now I need reading glasses to read just about anything.
