Jodie, thank you for your wonderful posts that have been so helpful to me as I experienced (over the last two years and in both eyes) cataract surgery, refractive error, positive dysphotopsia, YAGs, PVDs, vitreous prolapse, lens exchange, vitrectomy, and retinal tear in one eye that required cryopexy, gas injection and subsequent Laser photocogulation. It has certainly been helpful to read your thoughtful responses and it has helped me manage my own healthcare. You are an angel. :)
I am impressed with your knowledge and willingness to help others.
I want my crystalens explanted.
I live in Ohio, but I understand I will have to go out of town for help.
Can you recommend any surgeons who can do the job?
Thank you so much
Thanks for posting your comments about doing cataract surgery without sedation. I'm interested in doing the same if/when I need mine (I don't think I need it yet, but I'm guessing it might get worse with time). I'm in the Chicago area - would you feel comfortable sharing the name of a doctor who performs the surgery without sedation? Or if not, perhaps a tip how to find one who is? Thanks.
Just a quick note to say hi!
I have read many of your posts on cataract surgery, Mini monovision, Toric IOL, Monofocals etc. you do have a vast knowledge on these subjects. Please respond to my question on "eye community"
forum. Question is " What kind of vision will I have after cataract surgery?" I would really appreciate it. My surgery is next week. I am worried a lot about my outcome.
Thanks a lot, Confused Kate
