(Jim Bradley, are you listening?) I posted here 8 mos ago that I was disappointed (disgusted) to learn that I have the beginnings of cataracts in *each* eye, with the right eye being worse than the left (unusual for my young grasshopper age).
So I went to the eye dr. AGAIN this morning (I'm wearing sunglasses while I type this). I wanted to get some new reading glasses, and even though I was at the dr.'s about 8 mos. ago, I had the feeling that my prescription wasn't right anymore. So I wasn't going to spend $$$$ on new glasses without another exam. Well, it turns out the vision in my right eye HAS changed (deteriorated) considerably in 8 months. The guy can't correct the vision in the right eye anymore to match the left eye's corrected vision. That's aside from the fact that nothing looks crisp and clear anymore out of the that eye either.
8 months ago, the guy said, well it can take a long time for the cataract to develop to the point that you need to get it removed blah blah blah. Today he says, well, it's time to think about getting it removed. It's gotten so bad in 8 months, it's just going to get worse faster now.
Now I know this is not serious. I know this is a very common and minor operation. But I'm so mad. Unfortunately, the CoC here prevents me from using the language I'd like to use to express my discontent. And, then, I go home to learn we had a bear on the patio today.
