Last year was a wash when it came to keeping up with doctor appointments. This year was \”catch-up\” time for me. I just returned from the eye doctor and I will finally be getting my cataracts taken care of. Oh, fun. The macular nerve behind my eye is great. 99 on one eye and 100 on the other, so that is a good thing. I knew a lady who had macular degeneration and went totally blind. She had a few months to get prepared – and went to a place where she stayed for a few weeks to re-learn everything so that she would be able to get by. From what I have heard, she\’s doing great with a wonderful attitude.
The procedure only takes 10-15 minutes. It should be interesting. I will be awake when the procedure is done. It is AMAZING what they can do nowadays.
Actually, Cataract surgery has been around for ages. They\’ve just perfected it in recent times. Ancient Babylonia, Greece, and Egypt performed a form of cataract surgeries. The Islamic world, India and Western Africa also performed cataract surgeries during ancient times. It was referred to as \”couching.\”
I tell you I feel like an old car and I\’m going through a mini overhaul. It will be nice to see again.
