New Eyes

I bought some new specs last October after noticing my vision was not what it should be.Eye Test first and then off to the Optician with my precription.One week later, new specs ---great vision well pleased.About three months ago realised that vision was no longer great.Went to a different Hospital for Eye Test.Result ! Cataract's on both eyes." We can fix this for you and if you want to stop wearing specs we can do this also." " Ok how much ? "1300TL." OK say I when," Come back on Thursday and we will do one eye then.Went back, had it done and under local anesthetic and it was murder.No pain just irritation when they flip your eyeball out.Two weeks later go back for other eye to be sorted this time with anesthetic( not local ) and woke up as the nurses where lifting me onto my bed on the ward.Wonderful and despite being a bit woozy I wanted to go home.Mrs RIK came for me and wouldn't stop so I could get a couple of Beers.I was forced to go to bed at 21-30 and didn't wake up until 11-00 the next day.Now I need reading glasses. You just can't win.

Re: New Eyes

I am glad it all went well. DH will need cataract op next year. So this is interesting.

BTW it is impossible for your eye to be removed from the socket and still retain sight after. But maybe I misunderstood what you meant.

Re: New Eyes

Glad to hear the cataract op was a success even though you need reading glasses better than having to wear them all the time

Re: New Eyes

Bibby, I forgot to say and edit would not allow me, that I had a new lens in each eye.The surgeon just said to me that we take the eye out and put the new lens in.All I know is that it works.

Re: New Eyes

Sorry Rik, I think you must have misunderstood the surgeon. He probably meant taking the old lens out. The optic nerve isn't long enough to take an eye out, if it was, it wouldn't work when put back.

I am glad the op worked. My Husband has the beginning of cataracts and when his retinas tore/detached (respectively) he was treated by laser at Moorfields Eye Hospital, in London. They told him this will make the cataracts grow faster and he has been advised to have the op done in 6 to 8 months, when they are a little riper. Meanwhile his sense of colour is affected and he is having to wear very strong glasses. We are wondering what kind of a prescription he will end up with after the cataract op. I am sure we will both be relieved when he has had the work done. Can you tell me where you had your treatment as Moorfields will not be doing his Cataract ops and we are trying to find out what the options are...

Re: New Eyes

Hi Bibby.You are no doubt right about the optic nerve.I had it done at Medical Park Antalya and the doctor was Nilüfer Demibaş and she speaks perfect English.The Hospital is about 2 years old and has all the latest kit etc.

Re: New Eyes

Thanks for that RIK, I will save the information. It is very useful to have other people's experiences. I am glad it went well for you.
