    It's amazing how quickly the brain will adapt, especially if it was a choice that you made willingly.

A trip back to the Surgeon for a laser treatment where the break up the scar tissue and polish the lens. My right eye was done 4 years ago and apparently the same condition is occuring and both eyes will be done.
    Just a question to any other cataract repaired members....have you had the same issues? Did the laser polish work?
    Just had my last visit with the eye doctor . One hundred percent healed so I can now wash the sleep out of my eyes and rub them with dry with a towel ... Woo hoo ! And as nobody has answered Steve I mentioned the situation to her and asked if it was in my future. She said that it is very common and no big deal . Five minute procedure and you're back to A-Okay.......

    Great feeling getting the "you're healed" diagnosis.

    Thanks for the query and reminder Cap.
    Indeed the "laser polish" to get rid of the scar tissue was no big deal. One minute per eyeball, no pain, didn't even need to be dilated.
    Back to the excellent vision from post surgery. Doc said i MIGHT be back in 5 years.

    Welllll.......I guess it's time for the left eye, dangit. I don't use that eye much, never have. Have never been able to focus with it, so everything I've ever seen with it is just shapes, no details. Howsomever, I closed my right eye the other day, and the left eye is foggy all of a sudden, like looking through dirty glass. So this time I know what the deal is, and what will have to be done. Not looking forward to it (get it? not looking?) but Reckon it has to be done. So tomorrow gotta call the eye doctor and start the process. Sigh.

    OK, so that's done. Got the left eye fixed yesterday, and a good thing too. I can't really see very well out of it, but then I never could. At least the cloudiness is gone, and the brightness level is restored. Thanks to all who have contributed to this thread the last several years, it's very reassuring to read about others who have gone through the process.Thanks especially to Steve for the tip about rubbing near the eye rather than rubbing the eye.

    You are quite welcome for the tip. I figured it might save some damage to the eye. Not sure what it would take to fix it, but I'm sure it's not as easy as the original surgery.

    It's about time for my second eye to be done, just need to get to the doctor to verify, then schedule it.
