Cataract Success

I am pleased to report that it looks like the cataract surgery was a big success. What a relief. My husband had his worst eye operated on first. That eye had some damage of the retina from retinopathy. He was legally blind in that eye so they removed the cataract from that one first. We knew that his vision would not be normal.

Well, the first thing I noticed was that he could not understand why I was cautioning him not to trip over various objects when it was not dark. (He could tell that it was not dark! Big improvement.)

Next, he told me how pleased he was that he could read the baseball scores on TV and he could see the actor's faces. Yikes,  I didn't know that he could not see the faces before but I sure am glad that he can see them now.

Thank God and thank the doctors. We are happy with this news today.

  1. Good news! I think people adjust to bad eyesight, and then are amazed when they can really see.

  2. Isn't it wonderful what they can do for eyesight these days! I'm so happy for your DH! Bless you Anna - I don't comment much these days, but I'm still reading and praying. Hugs!

  3. I really can feel how bad the eyesight of your husband was. My mom and my sister went through the same case. It’s really hard for them to read, and yeah, they can’t see faces clearly. My mom went through an eye surgery first. Then after a few months, my sister ran through the procedure as well. The surgeries were both successful. The doctor was great. Likewise, the facility and equipment were amazing. I was really thankful to my best friend, as she was the one who recommended the clinic to us. Now, my mom and my sister really enjoy life! :’)
