I went to a new optometrist in Columbus, who recommends that I have a cataract in my good eye removed. I'm supposed to make an appointment at South Emmerson in Indianapolis to be evaluated. I have had a cataract in my good eye for at least ten years. Since I only have one good eye, Doctors in Salt Lake City recommended that I do nothing until this condition got worse. According to the Optometrist, I have progressed from stage 1 to roughly stage 2.5. I am only seeing about 20/40, whereas in the past I was correctable to 20/30, which is about as good as my heavily nearsighted eyes can get. It appeared to me while driving, especially at night, that my vision was a little off.
I don't know yet when the operation will be, but I am holding off on some other plans I had until I find out. I am told that this operation might correct my much of nearsightedness.
