My wife had extreme astigmatism. She opted for corrective implant lenses that cost $850/eye. They were not flexible and cannot be focused like her original lenses, but they helped her astigmatism.Thanks, everyone. I am diabetic, plus both my parents had cataracts, so I was bound to. My only question is how long to wait. I guess that will depend on the insurance company, so some extent.
Nathan, I didn't know about the different kinds of lenses. Good info, thanks.
No you can't or shouldn't be able to feel it. I couldn't ever wear contact lenses in the past due to a tear issue but the IOL (intra-ocular lens) did the trick. If querying about the focusing lens be sure to ask if one's prescription lends itself to its use.i had cataract in one eye, so had it sorted as it was sending the other eye out of focus, ie no real detail or colour.
Now i have a light sensitive eye due to the operation, as i had a standard nhs lense fitted.
If you have got the money buy the auto focusing lens so you can read with both eyes .
i think they also do one with a u v protection.
can any one feel it when they rub their eye ?
This guys paint jobs are terrible. I wouldn't do anything he had done to his eyes....I had cataract surgery 8 years ago. I wore glasses since elementary school. My vision was minus 8 diopters before cataract surgery, now it is 20-20. The procedure is very quick and totally painless. The insurance company only paid for basic lenses and I got what they call "accommodating" lenses which supposedly allow your eyes to focus like natural lenses so it cost me about $5000 out of pocket. I can't say if the accomodating lenses really make a difference because I have nothing to compare it to. But I have no complaints.
Please start a new thread for that. This thread won't get many hits unless people are interested in cataract treatment.Cool thanks for the reply K i have just ordered glasse's with the lense that changes with u v light as the one i had operated on picks up on bright light a bit more than the other one, plus i need to look cool for a picture i am taking for my book that is to be published called urban rhymes, had to get that in as well chuffed
its being released in may -june 2018, keep an eye out for it lol ( ok, un funny joke alert) sorry ill keep a lid on it.
Any ideas on a simple easy to use rocket for a first timer please? i have approx 100 to 250 to spend is that enough?, looks loads of fun
John - my wife had cataract surgery in March...both eyes, one after the other - left eye first, right eye next - two weeks apart.My left eye is getting worse and worse -- poor accuity, dimness, haziness. I can't put off cataract surgery much longer.
Anyone had it and care to share experiences?
