Okay you guys… I have been feeling sad this week. It's not about winning tickets to concerts I wanna go see form a radio station. I'm just feeling sad, and worried, because of next week. Monday is when I have my follow up about my right eye, and I don't know when I will have my prosthetic in. But that's not the problem. Wednesday, I am going to another eye doctor, because I am just gonna have a check up. But the thing is, I might have to have surgery again. Only it's on my good eye. My left one. I might have to have cataract surgery, because I do have glaucoma. The thing I a worried about is that I don't know how it will turn out. I hope that I will get to see without my cataract. I just don't know if it'll be risky for me or not. I'm just ready to get the visit over with, and to see what my eye doctor says about the situation.

Nyu.
One of my first surgeries after I was Dx'd with diabetes was to have a cataract removed from my left eye. That was in 1996 (i believe) . Of course with only one eye the surgery is undoubtedly very troubling for you. However, the cataract proceedure has been improved and refined in those interviening years between 1996 and today. I would expect that if you get an experienced cataract surgeon, you will have few difficulties. I understand that they now have lens implants which can use your eye focusing muscles to allow your lens to focus in much the same way as your real lens would. You might wish to ask about that. (that was not available to me when I had my surgery)

Surgery always involves risk, but I pray that your risk will be minimal!
