Not while I still feel woozy. Amazing how alert you are when in that condition, like you after surgery?

Lucy, hope you recovery really fast so you can see all of the beautiful, colorful irises blooming.

My husband had cataract surgery about 8 years ago and since then has 20/15 vision. When they took off the bandages the next day he was shocked at the color of my blouse, which was a deep turquoise blue. He always thought that particular top was a deep gray color. Smiling

I had not noticed any color changes, just blurryness if only used one eye. The first one was done 5 yrs ago, so wo\ith this one have run out of eyes to be played with. L.

Dr said that I could use the computer (I was surprised at that) but I was wearing my eye shield (has little holes in it). HJ We didn't have a computer when the right eye was done 5 yrs ago. You have instructions which you take home, drops etc. Plenty of guidence.

It is resting--Anita, not typing up the short ones robin, although it is written up. Nothing but soap operas on TV & I am not right up against the monitor. Can't get out & weed as I'm not supposed to bend over. Too sunny, anyway. thank you all for your concern. L

HJ Mom the worst problems are nerves beforehand & sometimes pain afterwards. My pain was like a sting (used tylenol as directed) & none today. Nerves disappeared right afterwards Smiling

eye is fine I lost my security & had to go through a lot with a PERSON thank heavens. It is reinstalled & really had fun getting back on cubits. Back to eye--still doing drops,see Dr. next Thurs. Know I will be able to give up eye shield at night. Hope I can bend over & get back to weeding. I do have goggles which I can use so dirt doesn't splash into the eye.

Sounds good. Do you know how well you can see out of it yet?

Sight excellent. I knew the first night that it was fine as I was watching the Celtics & an ad came up. I closed my right eye & could read the add through the eye shield which they put on in the operating room. So I would guess the right eye is for close sight & now the left is for distance. after all, you can't expect fake lenses to do everything. It is just a bit sore & have to use different drops for a month & tylenol if there is pain. My 'pain' is more of a sting.

That's so good to know. Last time I went to the eye Doctor, he said do you know what cataracts are? I said kinda, and he told me everyone has them to a certain degree, and that mine had not really developed yet, but due to the shape of the eye, and whatever, I could expect to have them get to the point where I needed an operation on them someday. I was a little upset, as I remember my Aunt Helen having the operation and being in a lot of pain, and had to be in a dark room for weeks. But he said the operation is nothing like that now, and in fact it would probably correct my vision to the point I wouldn't have to wear glasses.

But not yet......

Agree with not yet. I can read without my glasses unless it is tiny print or I am tired. Certainly don't need glasses to use the computer. do have a pair of 'progressives' which will now be spending time in their case. I could see easier recovery which came in the 5 yrs between eyes. It is scary, however.

Anytime they do anything to the eye is scary.
