Gang, I don’t usually ask the readership here for favors, but I could use some input for personal reasons. Looks as if the old guy here will soon be putting his eyes under the knife for some cataract surgery.
A tip: the docs tell me there’s sun damage from being on the outdoor range too much. Wear brimmed caps. Wear sunglasses. Just sayin’ …
Anyway, any of y’all who’ve gone through cataract surgery, I’d appreciate hearing your experiences and suggestions from a patient’s eye view. The docs have briefed me pretty well from their end of things.
And what’s the story on this “twilight sleep” business they use for the anesthesia? Yeah, I’ll leave the guns home that day…but I’m curious to know what the experience is like.
Thanks in advance! Your input should also become a useful artifact and archive here for others contemplating this type of surgery.
