After you get it done.
Don't accuse anyone of switching out your TV on you.
With one that has much brighter colors.

Seajay, you're definitely one of a kind! As for the cadillac surgery, you're gonna be amazed! Before I had mine done I was about to buy a new TV and computer monitor because they had gotten so dim. After the surgery they look good as new! The doc did not tell me that I would no longer need the bi-focals. Now my vision is excellent, except for extremely small print. Good luck!

Hey Seajay,

I got rid of 2 caddielacs 5 years ago. The doc replaced the lenses with bifocal inplants. They were a little pricey, but I don't have to were reading glasses. You might want to discuss it with your doc before surgery day. They need to do a special test at the office. As good as my 5 year old lenses are I bet the newest version is even better.

Hope you aren't worried about this -- it's a walk in the park. Worst part is the IV stick. A good nap when you get home and a whole new, bright world when you wake up.

Enjoy the drugs they give you!

I've been wearing glasses since ? I got hard contacts in 1962. Then a couple years ago a Dr. changed them out to soft lenses. I wore them for a year, then went in and had cataract surgery. One one month and the other the next. They replaced the old, foggy lens with corrective ones. The best they could correct my eyes with soft lenses was 40/20. In fact, without corrective lenses I couldn't even SEE the big "E" on a chart. After the new lenses were inserted I had 20/10 sight!! Meaning what a person with 20/20 vision could see at 10' I could see at 20'!!
Then a year later I had to go back and do a laser treatment on the right eye as the "sac" around the new lens was getting cloudy and I'm going to need it done on the left eye too.
Get it done, you'll be amazed!!
