My Glaucoma Journey

Last week I had to go to Rockhampton for measurements for bifocal lenses when I have cataract surgery. This was about a 2 hour session.  Lots of different drops in my eyes and looking through all different sorts of  machines all attached to computers printing out information.  How wonderful and lucky are we to have all these medical procedures available to us.  As I was sitting there waiting for a reaction from the eye drops, I started to think about what might be available in 50 years time.  The mind boggles. Maybe no one will have to wear glasses, who knows........ Until we need to use these things we don't know what is available.
The pressure in my eyes is still a bit high but that should be all fixed with the cataract surgery.  On the 5th and 6th of November I will  be having my surgery. I am taking fish oil tablets and using eye drops 4 times a day.  This will continue for 3 months after the surgery.  I am getting a bit impatient  as I just want it all over and done with.  Rember everyone PLEASE GET YOUR EYES CHECKED.
