    That was a great a news Mike! I had my eye surgery last year and I don't know why are my eyes still blurry and sun sensitive after 2 months of cataract surgery. After 2 months, condition of eyes get better and now I can see much better.

    #94 I guess the reverse to that Doc is can she see you???? LOL
    My surgeon said that I would be able to see all the dust I had missed when sweeping the floor, and that I would be able to really see all the wrinkles on my face... the cheek of the man! Told him I had 2 house bricks for him if his wasn't careful his head might end up between them. He had a good sense of humour and just laughed.
    I did find I had to keep my sunnies as it still is a little too bright sometimes.

    Victoria we wear sunnies all year round when outside.
    I even wear them in shopping centers, I find the fluros are not good for eyes.
    as a young man a couple of years ago i suffered from migranes, inherited from mum, and found out from my GP that there area number of triggers for it.
    One of them is flickering lights and Fluros do flicker though only the inner eye can see it.

    I use two eye guys, one last year only tells me, 'read the card' then decides if my glasses need an update.
    Today the eye specialist, professor what's his name cos I forgot.

    Take your temperature and say sit and wait.

    Called up by a very nice looking Asian lady, sadly she tells me her partner has a Genetic form of Cancer.
    So we begin in one room.
    Read the card, then looks into my eyes, just like her in doors did al those years ago.

    Then into a second room and drops in the eyes.

    Another machine to look into them again along with a second lot of drops.

    All done just go down the corridor and the professor will see you.
    I need a white stick now, those drops cannot see a bloody thing.

    Get called in and firstly he tells me about his new electric car he has bought, gets to know you before he begins.

    More looking into the eyes before he tells me 'no change in the last two years, you must be doing something right, how is you general health'?
    Do not know a General Health but my dad was a Captain in the Army!!

    Good he tells me you eat a lot of green vegetables, very good for the eyes, keep it up. Presumes he means the diet.

    Outside to see the receptionist.
    'Do you require my Medicare Card or Concession one'?
    'No sir just your credit card'

    Have a nice day, see you in two years.
    Happy daze John in Oz.

    John Had my second eye done last Thursday. When I say to the Surgeon or anyone who wants to know, I have waited over 3 years to have done, there is no response. However there is no doubt in my mind if I had your credit card they would have all been done and dusted 2 years 11 months and 6 days ago. Cheers JS

    Well John it cost $180 all up and got some $76 back from Medicare.
    Wife had both her cataracts done, no cost at all through Medicare.
