Cataract surgery complete on my left eye

On Thursday, January 28, 2010, I had cataract surgery on my left eye. Both eyes need surgery; my right eye is tentatively scheduled now to be operated on February 18.

So far, the left eye, in the white of the eye, is red, the eye is swollen, but there is already some improvement in sight. By Monday I hope to have the left eye in the best shape it has been in years. A correction of -2 is the best my doctor attempted because my right eye is at -5 and he did not want more than -4 difference; in fact, he went conservative with a -3 difference. Chances are I will need lenses to see correctly in my left eye; oh well! :-)
