Thumbs up Eye surgery

Several of the members of the forum have expressed their concern for me during the cataract surgeries. I am pleased to announce that both have gone very well and at distance I have 20/20 vision and everything is clear as can be!!!

The problem with the double vision that I have had since 1979 is all but gone also. I am sure I will have to use reading glasses and perhaps some double vision surgery may be called for. I can assure you that I see as clearly without glasses as I have in over 60 years and for that I am truly thankful to my Lord and have a special thank you to all of my friends here on the forum that have expressed concern and offered their prayers for me!!

A heartfelt thank you to everyone from Honey and me;

What wonderful news Jerry but it makes me sad when I remember my late grandmother who was virtually blind because of cataracts, and how, with today's technology it could have been cured so easily.

It is amazing what the advancements medicine have done. If anyone suspects they have something like cataracts see a doctor and get it done!! Let me also say that if anyone is a veteran, take advantage of the VA. I had heard so many horror stories I avoided them like the plague, turns out my experience has been fantastic to date. I think the Cataract surgery has cost me about 50.00 each time. Just a thought.

as a 27 yr employee of the VA hospital here, I agree with this post. we do a tremendous amount of eye surgeries over the course of a year, so we are experienced. those bad reports are from vets expecting more tha can be delivered(and we've had our share,too). Glad to hear about your sucessful outcome and your good report of our VA system.
