now this is teh suck-age

Went to the eye doctor today, and I got cataracts in both eyes.
Left is "no help" from changing RX and the right is still correctable to 20/30
so I can drive for now... the good news is that surgery will correct it 100%
and I will only need glasses to read if I get single vision implants. Maybe in
the mean time Brent can get the boards to print out in larger font instead of
only displaying it large afer posting... like v6power does, large when you type it.

I was only joking when I said I'd "quit when I needed glasses" but it's too late,
now I need surgery. I'm just glad it was not something worse, and my dad had
to have this done in his mid-late 30's so I guess I'm lucky I made it to 42 b4 mine.

Just keep me in your thoughts and prayers, it will go fine I'm sure. Probably get it
done in early September, I will have insurance then and it's a good time IMO to do it.

My grandfather had his cataracts removed 20 years ago and he can see better than he ever remembers even to this date. With the advances in technology since then, you should be good to go man.

Yeah, I think so!
I've always been near sighted, hopefully I can get good distance vision and get
the so-called bifocal implants. But the doc said my insurance does not cover those,
but he has financing for teh part they do not cover. I hope they are easy to adjust too.
Also, I had a detached retina already, so eye surgery does not scare me.

Thx Guys!

Re: now this is teh suck-age

...and thx Girly!

I was really worried b4 I knew what it was, macular degeneration is really bad,
irreversible and untreatable AFAIK... all one can do is try and slow it's progress...
I was just hoping (if I had a bad eye condition) that I could see well enough for
a while to drive my son's car at the strip for a couple seasons. I have SC driver's license
that is good until 2014 without another eye test, but that's a moot point now I guess.
<whew>

<Feels lucky to be no worse off than he is!!!

I have a relatively young eye doc that does lots of these so I feel I'm in good hands...

Dad gave me his too, but not the way your gramps did!

my mom saved my tonsils for years, maybe still has them!
those are creepy. I chided her for still having them. at least it's not like
that movie where Jake Busey wanted his cancerous testicle saved
his bud retrieved it for him, lost it and substituted a walnut :rofl:
Jake had it encased in a plastic cube and made into a necklace :rofl:
funny movie, but I never saw the title.

See, I'd have to keep that. lol. I'm very suprised I haven't lost a finger or limb yet...plenty of close calls and had a few fingers put back together, but never lost one completely.

Thx Nicole! I'm looking forward to the better vision... I can wear cool shades too


Thanks everyone, I'm just really glad it was something simple like this.
It's not even that expensive w/insurance I don't think.

If he's getting cataracts then Lasic is a total waste of money...
Mine are hereditary. So I waited.
