Yep, it's cataracts
We just got back from the optometrist, and hubby has cataracts in both eyes. 2 different kinds, one is a very fast-moving one. Even today with the changes he made with his computer screens.....dark background, white print and enlarged, it's worse than it was yesterday, even.
The optometrist even called the girl at the front desk in to show her hubby's eyes. She's a student from Chicago, and hasn't seen his situation before.
Because it is cataracts his examination is covered by our provincial insurance, instead of $200 out of pocket. Eye exams are not covered as a rule.
He's also putting a fast request for surgery as well. We are all relieved, as we know cataract surgery is quick and painless, and commonplace. Still a little nerve-wracking as it is our eyes, after all. But it only takes 5 minutes.
I know some of you had cataract surgery and we feel very confident.
