Several months ago I mentioned in one of my blogs that I have cataracts in both eyes.
They were first diagnosed about four years ago and have got progressively worse.
In March this year I saw a new optometrist and got a second opinion. I was referred to the public hospital eye clinic. I knew the waiting list to be seen was long.
Almost 3 months ago I was seen. I was put on the Category 2 list for surgery.
I am booked to have the right eye fixed up on September 17th.
I am so blessed to be getting my eyes fixed up. Having blurred vision has affected my lifestyle somewhat, things such as no driving, difficulty reading books, problems finding items at the supermarket, had to move my chair closer to the tv, hard to do my art and craft things.
I now have a better understanding about the issues people have with permanent vision impairment.
