Cataract Surgery

Cataract Surgery

By the time this blog is posted, I’ll have two new eyes (almost). When I took the eye exam last year to renew my driver’s license I couldn’t read much from my left eye. When I sat to read a book recently I wondered why the print was so faint. When I drove at night stop lights had halos around them when I looked out my left eye. From the right one, everything appeared slightly doubled.

I made an appointment and discovered I had cataracts with astigmatism. That was news to me. After a month of waiting, I got two appointments with an eye surgeon, one week apart. Now I’ll be able to see Thanksgiving guests with more clarity. Perhaps I can even get back to finish that small print book. I wonder if the print will be darker now.

For this Thanksgiving I’ll be very grateful for eye doctors and their expertise.


My latest book, Joshua’s Journey: One Boy’s Victory Over Allergies is available here on All my books are available in Kindle and paperback. The Miracle Books are also available in audible.

  1. Good luck, Sally. Dee’s had both eyes done and got along fine. And happy Thanksgiving–with more clarity! 🙂

  2. Oh Sally, You will love your new vision. I also was not aware how much I was missing and saw the halos when I was driving at night. I had the procedure a couple of years ago and it has made a wonderful difference. It is a miraculous procedure.

  3. I had my cataract done about a year and a half ago, one session for each eye. After recovery – just a short time – I looked in the mirror and wondered who the heck that gray-haired woman was staring back at me! Until I had the cataracts removed my hair seemed its normal gold-ish brown. I never realized that the “gold-ish” color in my hair was really gray. What a surprise! But what really delighted me was that I could read the street signs without squinting and the flowers were much more vivid. It was definitely worth it.
