So this is generally an "old folks" issue - I am finally scheduled for cataract surgery (July 23 and August 4) and can't wait to get rid of these awful, cloudy lenses. It's been like looking through cheesecloth for the last 3 years...
I have also been very nearsighted (ie no far vision) for most of my life and have been talked into getting a Crystalens replacement. Cost of the cataract surgery and normal lens replacement -0- - costs of the Crystalens and correction of astigmatism - $8500. BIG DIFFERENCE.
All of my life I have wanted to see like normal people so am willing to pay the price but then started reading about the lens (the internet is a blessing AND a curse) and am now not certain; in fact, I am scared. I have read a few reviews of people very satisfied with the result and lots of reviews from people who are extremely unhappy. I realize unhappy people are more likely to post something so take all the comments with a grain of salt. But now I contemplate if its worth the added expense (man I could buy a nice bike with that money!) and will I get the result I expect or be disappointed. Or should I just do the minimum and be happy with no cloudy lenses but still have to wear glasses to see far?
I welcome any comments, suggestions, experiences, issues any of you are experienced. Again, alittle nervous about subjecting my eyes to surgery and need some reassurance..
