A Tale Of Two Cataract Operations

I have now had two cataract operations.

There was a few weeks between the operations and in the interval they changed the machines.

  • The first was a Leica and the second was a Zeiss.

There were no problems with either operation, but there were differences, particular in how I felt afterwards.

  • With the first, I was slightly more uncomfortable and had a slight amount of pain in my left eye. But the pain was nothing that a few ginger biscuits couldn’t cure.
  • With the second, I’ve had no pain at all and the eye looks less red. I was able to take the dressing off in the evening and go out the next day, which I couldn’t do after the first.

Now fifty-four hours after the operation, my eyes are back to normal. I can even type this without putting on my glasses.

Conclusion

I would suggest that before you have a cataract operation, you make sure the surgeon will be using the latest machines.
