The nearer I get to the date for this cataract surgery, the less sanguine I am about it. My expectations appear to have been unrealistically rosy and while it's better than it used to be, outcomes are still not all that great. And I can't get much in the way of straight talk from the cataract surgeon's office.
Unless I am really impressed by high-quality information on my first visit to the surgeon, I'm probably only going to get the worst eye done. It's my non-dominant eye and if the results aren't that great, well, it's not seeing all that great right now, either.
A decade ago, they were supposedly five years away from a nice, soft drop-in replacement for one's natural lens. It looks like that never happened. I am disappointed by this. The things they are putting in people's eyes instead scare me: small, odd-looking.... Just not comfortable with the idea.
