I was nearsighted since the age of 5. Since my 8th grade science project on "The Human Eye" I have always been fascinated by the study of sight and vision. When I had cataract surgery with Crystalens recently I started scouring the web for all the stories and scientific articles I could find, wanting to learn as much as I could. I have started answering some posts from patients whose situations are similar to my own in the hopes that I can share my experiences and some of what I've learned through reading. My opinions are no substitute for those of an MD. The most important thing in cataract surgery is to find the best surgeon you can, who will also be responsive to your questions and follow-up needs.
