Guys, my post are getting worse by the day, I need both of my eyes operated on which will happen in July. I have allergy induced asthma and until I got on this Xolair medicine I used steroids for about a year and a half in large amounts and it gave me cataracts and some other damage.

Thankfully they will be replacing the lens in both eyes in two appointments two weeks apart. I have a hard time reading and seeing the keyboard and driving is out till then, I only see a little with the left eye the other is clouded totally. Until then please bare with me.

Good luck. Cataract surgery is a day operation so you will be in and out prettty quickly.

Heal quickly and come back when you are ready.

Trav,
I'm really sorry to hear that.

My mother had both done (like you but 4 weeks apart) last year and hasn't looked back.

I am in between having cataract surgery in both eyes. It has gone pretty well, although I had some minor complications in my first eye due to radial keratatomy 30 plus years ago. it's a pretty easy surgery with a pretty fast recovery. God luck


If you think you can, or if you think you can't, You are probably right.

Not going anywhere, but my post will probably be missing letters and numbers and god knows what else.

Edit: They will do the right eye on the 9 July and the left on the 23 July.

Ill try to look the other way if you make a spectacle of yourself.

A month isnt very long to wait. This time two months from now itll seem like nothing but a blur.

Best wishes. It's an 11 minute per eye surgery. I hope the steroid induced damage is limited.
Good luck!

Both my Wife and 2 co-workers have had both eyes done. They can all see much better. My Wife was legally blind up until 1996 when She had her eye surgery. It was experimental back then. Her problem was dislocated lenses but it is the same surgery to fix.

Cataract surgery isn't all that new...

Monet had them out nearly 100 years ago, and they weren't new then.

Enjoy your new eyes! A boss of mine had dual lens replacement - quick recovery and almost immediate vision improvement. He was 60-something and didn't need reading glasses....weather the storm and you should be back in business quickly!
