Cataract surgery

Had both of my eyes done in Dec 2020, two weeks apart. Took a couple of days for vision to be really clear. Eyes are still VERY light sensitive. I need several different readers for reading different fonts, computer work, working on the spit (bi-focal safety glasses).
Best decision I have made in years. By the way, get blueblockers for computer work. Saves a lot of eye strain.

Thanks for the blue blockers info, much appreciated. Tomorrow I get the other eye done. Do you still take eye drops? PJ

No. I had to use them for a couple of weeks. I still have a bottle of artificial tears that I use every once in a while but not often. It is going to take some time to adjust to your new vision. Your eyes have been corrected but your brain needs time to adjust to your new vision. You may experience some headaches and mayhaps some vertigo at times but not often and not severe. You're gonna love it the 1st time you go for a drive and are able to see everything around you.

Well, both eyes are done! My eye doctor says I now have 20/20 vision in both eyes. Probably two to three weeks for the old brain to get in tune with the new vision. Wish I had this done years ago! The colors are now so vivid and clear! Sorry for running on, I'll go home now. :jester:
